CONCERTS FOR SCHOOLS
for children in nursery and primary schools
for middle-school students
The Fondazione ORT undertakes other initiatives every year aimed at students and young people, helped by the collaboration of musicologist Marco Mangani, a lecturer at the University of Ferrara and a charismatic guide for the youngsters. Two sessions in the Theatre in which students can listen to rehearsals with the conductor and soloists. The “Prove d’Orchesta” scheme is organised by Marco Mangani, who also introduces the sessions.
INVITATION TO MUSIC
for high schools students
This initiative aims to educate tomorrow’s listeners and provide the essential tools for talking about music, its history and its repertoire in relation to the school curriculum. The intention is to encourage the opening of a window on the essential role plated by music in the context of western civilisation, the very context that constitutes the primary object of the history, literature and philosophy the students are engaged in studying. The scheme offers students a structured educational listening journey (in class during school hours and in the presence of the class teacher), combined with a special discounted rate for the ORT concert season. Marco Mangani, who has headed the scheme since its inception, is assisted by two young educators from the University of Florence, Marco Gallenga and Giulia Sarno, who play an essential part in the lessons.
