Open rehearsals

Visiting a dress rehearsal allows children from childcare centres and schools to experience the Berliner Philharmoniker together with renowned conductors and soloists. It offers them unique insights into the sound world and rehearsals of a large symphony orchestra. There is a brief introduction for childcare centres and schools on site. All schools receive teaching material in advance to prepare for and follow up on the rehearsal visit. For selected dates, we offer workshops in schools to prepare for the rehearsal visit.
