At a dress rehearsal, daycare children and schoolchildren can experience the Berliner Philharmoniker together with renowned conductors and soloists. This gives them a unique insight into the world of sound and rehearsal work of a major symphony orchestra. There is an age-appropriate introduction for daycare centres and schools, as well as a short debriefing after the rehearsal visit.

The dress rehearsal visits for grades 7–9 are complemented by preparatory workshops at the school. Please enter a selection of dates here.
