The Baltic Sea Philharmonic and Kristjan Järvi will join British indie pop band Bastille for the latest event in Channel Aid’s ‘Live in Concert’ series. Channel Aid, the world’s first YouTube charity channel, is an initiative of the Hamburg-based FABS Foundation, which provides access to sports and dance activities for children and the disabled. The Elbphilharmonie concert show will be livestreamed on Channel Aid, which collects donations to FABS Foundation social projects with every view of the channel.
The Channel Aid concert with Bastille is another new artistic adventure for the boundary-breaking Baltic Sea Philharmonic, as it will be the orchestra’s first collaboration with a pop band. Building on their experience on working with Estonian singer-songwriter Mick Pedaja on tour with their ‘Nordic Pulse’ and ‘Midnight Sun’ programmes in 2019, the orchestra and Kristjan Järvi will perform specially orchestrated Bastille songs in signature Baltic Sea Philharmonic style to create a unique orchestral soundtrack. The musicians will play the whole show by heart, and as a single uninterrupted stream of music. With Järvi’s production company Sunbeam Productions as co-producer of the show, the Elbphilharmonie audience is guaranteed a sonic and visual spectacular.
The sold-out concert will be live broadcasted on Channel Aid’s YouTube channel.
