Musicals and Concerts

Together with UBS, we create unique shows that not only showcase the commitment and artistic prowess of our main partner’s employees but, above all, help children acquire their desired skills.

We're currently organizing the fourth edition of our musical!

Since 2019, we’ve been preparing charitable performances, with the proceeds directed toward educational scholarships for children and youth from socially disadvantaged backgrounds.

The organization of such an event entails many months of hard work. Spring marks the beginning of preparations to ensure the premiere takes place at the year’s end. During the busiest periods, UBS employees dedicate week after week, spending several hours at rehearsals. This tremendous commitment, showcased year after year, fills us with immense admiration and pride!

Our musicals and concerts are original creations by our volunteers and UBS employees. They handle the script, direction, choreography, music, set design, and, of course, the on-stage performance as singing and dancing actors. Meanwhile, the Hearty Foundation team manages organizational and promotional tasks, coordinates and documents activities, and liaises with external entities, such as theaters. After raising funds, the next step is to allocate them to educational scholarships for our beneficiaries.

What makes the project stand out?

Musicals and concerts generate energy, joy, and a sense of unity in a shared purpose—a feeling only known to those who’ve been part of the project. It’s a unique fusion of art and philanthropy!

Although these performances carry an amateur spirit, the artistic caliber is truly remarkable. Each year, the artists receive endless applause and heartfelt congratulations from a deeply moved audience. Every show becomes a singular event, an experience you just have to be part of.

When volunteers are asked about the wellspring of their strength for months of preparation, they emphasize the awareness that they’re doing it for the children, and they cannot let them down. The knowledge that all proceeds contribute to educational assistance for the Foundation’s beneficiaries adds purpose to their efforts. They also note that the time spent together during rehearsals serves as a powerful bonding experience, often marking the inception of lasting relationships and certainly creating memories worth cherishing. And then, there’s the added significance—performing on a professional stage is often the realization of a dream!
