On 5 and 6 April 2019, the Filarmonica della Scala performs for young people, teachers and families
Filarmonica della Scala is back to sparking the curiosity of little ones. This time it will draw them in with notes from Felix Mendelssohn's masterpiece A Midsummer Night's Dream, which is headlining the 2019 edition of Sound, Music! The Filarmonica's complimentary educational project is organised in collaboration with Main Partner UniCredit conceived by the director Francesco Micheli.
The children of Milan's elementary schools and their teachers will enjoy propaedeutic classroom activities and performances held just for them at the Conservatorio di Milano. The goal is to stimulate the children to listen to the music consciously.
The events are scheduled for Friday, 5 April (reserved for schools) and Saturday, 6 April at 5.30 pm (open to the public) at the Verdi concert hall inside the conservatory. The musicians of Piccola Filarmonica della Scala and the Chamber Orchestra of the Conservatorio di Milano conducted by Alessandro Ferrari will be joined by the Conservatorio choir directed by Maria Grazia Lascala to bring to life the four protagonists: Lysander, Hermia, Demetrius and Helena. More than a thousand children are involved in the project again this year.
After participating in talks and lessons at school, they will be prepared for the first-hand experience at the one-of-a-kind performance in the concert hall.
