In 2019, Filarmonica della Scala will perform nine international concerts from January to June on a tour led by Riccardo Chailly.
In recent years, Filarmonica della Scala has greatly increased its international appearances to celebrate the orchestra's rich history with performances at renowned concert halls around the world. In 2018, Filarmonica della Scala performed 17 concerts in nine countries attracting a total audience of approximately 30 000 people for the whole tour.
UniCredit has been supporting Filarmonica della Scala as a partner since 2000 and in 2003 became its main partner. Fabrizio Saccomanni, Chairman of UniCredit and President of Filarmonica della Scala, said: "The annual international tours of Filarmonica have played an important role in building worldwide recognition for the orchestra in an effort to make exceptional classical music available to a broader and more diverse audience. UniCredit strongly believes that supporting culture and talent has a positive impact on the communities in which we operate and the aim of our partnership with Filarmonica is to provide remarkable experiences to our communities as a way to foster social cohesiveness and promote a sense of belonging."
