Open rehearsals

52 charity evenings, over 86,000 spectators, over 1 million 200 thousand euro raised, 41 associations supported since 2010 . These are the numbers of Open rehearsals della Filarmonica della Scala, now a real musical season that every year allows the public to enjoy great concerts at affordable prices, while contributing to important social projects.

The charity cycle that allows the public to attend concert rehearsals by opening the doors of the theatre at reasonable prices for a social purpose is back on track. Teatro alla Scala at affordable prices with a social purpose: three ticketed events, until 23 October 2022, anticipating the respective concerts of the season and whose proceeds will go to support as many non-profit organisations that support the families of children hospitalized in Milan.

From caring for children to combating poverty, from assisting the elderly to assisting people with disabilities, from scientific research to projects for young people in the suburbs, over the years Open rehearsals has helped to meet a variety of community needs. This is thanks to the generous participation of the orchestra's musicians, conductors and soloists, the collaboration between the Teatro alla Scalathe City of Milan and the Main Partner UniCredit, joined by Esselunga, and thanks to the support of the UniCredit Foundation.

Open rehearsals is the charity project created in 2010 by Filarmonica della Scala. The initiative allows the public to attend concert rehearsals at Teatro alla Scala at affordable prices with a social purpose: with the proceeds Open rehearsals funds Milanese nonprofit Associations with different areas of social intervention: children and the elderly, the fight against poverty, assistance to people with disabilities, scientific research, and initiatives for youth in the suburbs.The last edition of Open rehearsals in 2020 supported Associations that support struggling families of out-of-home children being treated in Milan hospitals by providing them with housing during their stay. These included Buzzi Children's Hospital in Milan, the Ada Bolchini dell'Acqua and Pio Istituto di Maternità Foundations, and LILT _ Lega Italiana Tumori. This edition recorded nearly 10,000 spectators of whom 1100 were loyalists (the figure includes the free rehearsal that the orchestra dedicates to social services each year). In Italy, Open rehearsals is one of the best models of support for nonprofits through benefit concerts, because it guarantees the entire proceeds to the beneficiary associations, with no business risk.From 2010 to date €1,200,000 has been raised by supporting 44 Associations. In ten years with a growing audience Open rehearsals has allowed access to Teatro alla Scala at affordable prices to more than 100,000 people . In addition, the season preview on November 3 is free and dedicated to the initiatives of Social and Youth Policies of the City of Milan. The City of Milan, Philharmonic Main Partner UniCredit and UniCredit Foundation are involved, with an active role in decision-making. From 2019 Open rehearsals has the support of Esselunga.
