Rehearsal visits are a great opportunity for students between 8 and 18 years of age from our partner schools to gain first-hand experience of how a symphony orchestra works. Children can learn tricks of the trade, find out what a conductor does and how the musicians follow his lead. To help them deal with the experience, we provide a small booklet which we’ve compiled just for the occasion. Experience shows that children simply love these visits; they sit through the rehearsals with interest and afterwards talk about them for days.
The programme is also an outstanding opportunity for educators to teach their students the material in a special way, through shared experiences, and to make music class more exciting.
