The third annual Children’s Culture Festival begins tomorrow at Harpa at
11:00, with a concert by a choir comprised of 1,300 children.

The gargantuan children’s choir is made up of fourth graders from all parts of the capital area. They will perform a piece by Áki Ásgeirsson entitled ‘268°’ which is inspired by video games and will incorporate various visual elements. Their performance will be followed by a special appearance by local pop legend Páll Óskar.

Other festival events happening tomorrow include diverse musical concerts, recording workshops, school bands and a ballet performance. The evening will wrap up with a concert at 20:00 featuring Champions of Death, Captain Fufanu and the latest Músiktilraunir winners, Vök.

Programming will continue throughout the week. The festival ends on Sunday, April 28 with a concert at Laugardalslaug pool.

The festival aims to promote cultural activities for and with children and young people, to raise awareness of youth-oriented events and culture and make children more visible in the cultural community.
