This project is so incredibly special, with many talented individuals involved and it is thrilling to at long last share it with all of you.
Going the Distance came about from the concept of Jonathan’s thoughts and ideas on music and gives us insight as to how music has impacted and influenced Jonathan’s life. He performs pieces that take us on Jonathan’s journey from a young boy to the present day. Jonathan is joined onstage by orchestra, choir, Disney’s a cappella group, ”D’Cappella”, and acclaimed cellist Tina Guo for a show with a very varied repertoire crossing many genres.
Jonathan’s repertoire ranges from Disney Classics to his first live performance of the long awaited debut of Puccini’s ‘Nessun Dorma’

A MESSAGE FROM JONATHAN
Hey everyone, It's me.There are a lot of interesting things happening right now, and it's all quite a lot to keep up with. As the TV special rolls out across the US it is so wonderful to see the positive reaction from so many of you. I hope sincerely that you are as excited to finally start really seeing and hearing everything that I and the team have been working on over the last few years, although much is still to be seen and even more is still to be done. The road is long and carries on for miles; but it is the road I have chosen to walk and with you, my beautiful friends, beside me; the journey is a pleasant one. I love you all
Be kind, ~J.
There is another new addition. After putting out a post requesting big questions, Jonathan has begun work on a series of writings called
“Ask Jonathan” which has been incorporated onto his website.
Many write and have questions for Jonathan both big and small, so he wanted to share his thoughts on various topics and give all of you an insight into the inner mechanisms that make up Jonathan Antoine. If you have a question for Jonathan you can contact him through his social medias and use the #AskJonathan and you too may make it onto the pages of Ask Jonathan.
Trying to express how much Fantoines mean is incredibly difficult. Whether you have been here from the very beginning or are newly discovering Jonathan’s music, how humbling it feels to be building such a special community.
The support and encouragement, especially when delving into outside-the-box ventures, keeps everything inspired and alive.
It is truly a joy to feel the building anticipation as we reveal more and more.
