Fantastique! Live

THE LARGEST-EVER CHILDREN’S CHORAL EVENT IN THE UK

FANTASTIQUE! LIVE will be the largest-ever children’s choral event in the UK, with a target of at least 10,000 singing children. It will give them an unforgettable musical experience and seek to inspire them with a continuing love of music and singing, as the main legacy of Berlioz 150.

FANTASTIQUE! LIVE will take place during spring/summer 2022 at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff. It is inspired by the Charity Children’s Concert attended by the composer Hector Berlioz at St Paul’s Cathedral in June 1851, with 6,500 singing children: “the most extraordinary thing I have seen and heard in my whole life”. It will incorporate an eclectic range of musical styles, from classical to hip-hop, and will include the world première of a specially-commissioned new work by a leading contemporary composer, as well as of some of the pieces Berlioz heard in 1851.

FANTASTIQUE! LIVE will be delivered in partnership with Young Voices, Kilimanjaro Live and the Principality Stadium, together with broadcast and media partners and other key bodies in Wales.

OUR VISION: TO INSPIRE YOUNG PEOPLE WITH A LIFELONG LOVE OF MUSIC AND SINGING
