Hip Baroque Choc
Meeting between young people and baroque music

Launched in 2016, the Hip Baroque Choc educational project offers young people in vocational secondary schools the chance to take part in practical artistic workshops throughout the year and to take part in a creation combining baroque music, hip-hop dance, declamation, percussion, writing, theater, and applied arts, with professional artists.

For its eighth edition, the Hip Baroque Choc will present a show based on the Olympic Games, bringing together, on May 15th 2024, musicians from Le Concert de la Loge, dancers from the Käfig and Poisson/Buffle companies and students from 12 secondary schools from the Paris region and North of France.

Hip Baroque Choc brings together very different social and artistic worlds, encouraging young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to develop their potential and strengthen their ambitions. The project focuses primarily on vocational courses, without any artistic education.

10 secondary schools are involved :

  • The Gustave Eiffel High School in Varennes-sur-Seine
  • The Jean Moulin High School in Vincennes
  • The Louis Girard High School in Malakoff
  • The Anne Robert Jacques Turgot High School in Montmorency
  • The Auguste Blanqui High School in Saint-Ouen
  • The Adrienne Bolland High School in Poissy
  • The Gustave Eiffel High School in Ermont
  • The Ferdinand Buisson High School in Ermont
  • The Auguste Renoir High School in Paris
  • The Jacques Decour High School and Middle School in Paris

Also, 2 axons establishments :

  • The Corbusier High School in Soissons
  • The Julie Daubié High School in Laon

For the first time, a junior edition will take place thanks to the participation of the younger students from The Jacques Decour School, one class of which will take part in the show. The project will also be open to pupils from special classes including foreign students and disabled students.

The Hip Baroque Choc is a true meeting point between very different social and artistic worlds, and promotes young people from disadvantaged backgrounds in order to reveal their capacity and strengthen their ambitions. The project is essentially focused on professional streams of education, where artistic education is rarer and school dropout is more important.

The Cultural Olympiad label will give all the young people taking part in the show in 2024 the opportunity to learn about the three Olympic values of excellence, friendship and respect !
Since 2016, Hip Baroque Choc has brought together 22 schools, 7,000 students, 750 hours of interventions and 50 teachers.

Olympics ! 

In 2022, 2023 and 2024, the Hip Baroque Choc joins the Cultural Olympiad of the Olympic and Paralympic Games of Paris 2024. The Concert de la Loge regains its historic adjective and embraces the Olympic values.

The history of the Games, often accompanied by cultural competitions in their first decades of the 20th century, is honored by exploring, through workshops and staging, the values of respect, solidarity and surpassing oneself, common to athletes, musicians and dancers.

The orchestra is launching its first “Hip Baroque Olympics” by bringing to a higher level the meeting between students from the different establishments benefiting from the project, and between the different artistic activities practiced in each class.

The show

Each season, students prepare a show throughout the year, which is presented in public and brings together students and artists on stage, this year, on May 15, 2024 in Paris.

On this occasion, the greatest works of baroque music are danced, sung and reinterpreted in a show combining hip-hop dance, singing, percussion, writing, theater, declamation and applied arts.

This year, the program will feature pieces by Antonio Vivaldi, Jean-Philippe Rameau and André Campra, and will focus particularly on the text of the Olimpiade by the famous librettist Metastasio.


Throughout the year, between 200 and 300 hours of artistic workshops are offered to students during school time, led by professional artists.


Hip-hop dance and choreography to baroque music.


From lyrical singing to slam, an introduction to voice, rhythm and stage.


Baroque percussion and students’ professional tools at the service of music.


Creation of sets, costumes and accessories inspired by hip-hop and sports themes.


In addition to working throughout the school year with classes participating in the Hip Baroque Choc show, the Concert de la Loge also offers one-off actions through “micro-shock” workshops.

These sessions are led by a quartet of classical musicians who are accompanied by a hip-hop dancer and/or a percussionist and their content is adjusted according to their duration, from 20 to 50 minutes.

During a lesson or part of a lesson, some of the greatest hits of baroque music are performed by the musicians before the entry of a hip-hop dancer. This demonstrative part continues with an exchange of questions, as well as participatory games of rhythms and dances which draw the students into a fun sensory experience around this music.

These micro-shocks can be offered to all educational establishments, adapted to younger audiences.

Alongside all these workshops, the Concert de la Loge offers a cultural journey to students through guided tours of the Louvre Museum and invitations and outings for concerts and dance shows.
