Glasgow hosts 127 musical events a weekGlasgow has been named City of Music by UNESCO in recognition of its rich musical past.

In its case to UNESCO in June, Glasgow said it has a number of leading music venues and concert halls, and hosts 127 musical events every week.

Home to the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, the Scottish Opera and the BBC”s Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Glasgow will now join the Creative Cities Network, UNESCO”s list of culturally distinguished cities.

Welcoming the news, Bob Winter, Glasgow Lord Provost, told the BBC: "We embrace the award on behalf of our talented musicians and composers whose work has contributed to our great city being given the permanent prestige of being a City of Music."

A new body will now be set up in Glasgow to oversee its musical events.

Two other European cities have received the City of Music title since it was established in 2006 – Seville in Spain was the first, followed by Bologna in Italy (2007).
