We start 2020 with a bang on 4 January with a special charity concert at one of our favourite venues, the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg. The Baltic Sea Philharmonic and Kristjan will be headlining Channel Aid’s ‘Live in Concert’ show together with British indie band Bastille. The event will be our first big collaboration with a pop group, and we’re really looking forward to it. Building on the experience of working with Estonian singer-songwriter Mick Pedaja on our ‘Nordic Pulse’ and ‘Midnight Sun’ tours in 2019, the orchestra 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.
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.
