What is Classical Crossover?

Classical Crossover is a term used to describe music by artists who adopt strong classical influences, but who have an accessible and popular sound or a marketable image aimed at a wider audience.

Concerts organised by Jannie Rawlinson have featured popular classical crossover artists including Official Classical Album Chart topper Joanna Forest who duets with tenor and first ever “Britain’s Got Talent” winner Paul Potts.

Other performers include Hercules Smith, as seen on BBC One’s “The Voice” and “Let it Shine”, Lucy Thomas from ITV’s “The Voice Kids”, Keedie Green from “The Voice” and Royal Composer Dr Olga Thomas.

The concerts have also featured Christina Johnston, who is the singer of the official Purple Poppy Appeal song “A Million Tears” released internationally in 2021.  Christina has also performed for the President of China and sings in 12 different languages.

Decca-signed artist Elan Catrin Parry from Wrexham  also appeared, along with soprano Natasha Hardy and The Voice finalists Belle Voci.

Classical Brit Awards nominees Ida Girls and Billboard artist Agne G have performed too, as has Gruffyd Wyn, recipient of The Golden Buzzer from Amanda Holden on 2018’s Britain’s Got Talent.

The concerts had a large global audience, including a strong fan base in the USA and Europe. Some fans were invited by Jannie to feature in the concert between the musical performances and to share their thoughts about their own love of the classical crossover genre.

In October 2019, Jannie organised a fundraising event filmed in a North Wales TV studio and live streamed globally, with audiences in USA, New Zealand, China and Europe.

ClassicalXOver4U has been born out of passion for promoting Classical Crossover Artists in the music industry and has been at the forefront of the media to achieve results for the independent artist.
