Stunning #Festival Opener #Harmonium #Edinburgh #edintfest .@edintfest www.henni.photo

Last night, the greatest cultural show on earth launched with a mesmerising spectacle, the Harmonium Project.

John Adams’ Harmonium performed by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and the Edinburgh Festival Chorus was set against a stunning projection of light and animations on the outside of the Usher Hall in front of a  crowd hypnotised and delighted in turn.

What a show; what a festival; what a city!
