Help for the homeless and the poor.
With Holy Week only days away, Milan’s non-profit Opera Cardinal Ferrari will host an Easter charity concert on Thursday 26 March to raise funds for their care for the homeless.
From the mediaeval to the Renaissance, from the 1600s to the present day, including works by Monteverdi, Bach and Mozart, the concert will star the Coro della Corte and the Corale Polifonica Sforzesca.
Proceeds from the concert will help to fund the non-profit’s day centre, where volunteers work to provide the needy with articles of food, clothing and personal hygiene to enable them to live in dignity. They also favour socialisation to help their guests find their self-respect and respect for others, with an aim to reinsertion in society.
The Opera, founded in 1921, is one of Milan’s oldest charities. In 2014 it offered the homeless 66,000 hot meals and 17,000 breakfasts, and donated to families in difficulty over 2,200 food packs and almost 7,400 items of clothing. They also provided 400 free medical checks and over 850 laundry services, as well as 5,200 showers and 1.500 haircuts.
Concertgoers are requested to make a free offer to the charity’s funds. Further information and obligatory booking on 02846 7411.
