Celebrate the greatest event in history!
An event that has become an Easter tradition in Scotland, RESURRECTION brings together Christians from all over the central belt to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus in an evening of music and worship on Easter Sunday.
It is led by the Origin Scotland band, choir and orchestra, and held annually in one of the world's great concert halls, home to the Edinburgh Festival - the Usher Hall.
