Film Music Prague 2017 – Festival

Next April, specifically on Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd, a small and humble film music festival will be held in Europe, that has been making its way for several years; Film Music Prague 2017, that as the name indicates, takes place in Prague capital of the Czech Republic.


Scottish composer Craig Armstrong will be the main guest of the festival, in addition to Japanese conductor Chuhei Iwasaki. As a curiosity, indicate that as the official website states, guests participation is an act of goodwill, and attendance can’t be guaranteed (a curious, but honest statement).


Thus, during these two days, two thematic concerts will be held, being the first one on Friday 21st of April 2017 at 8 pm under the name “A Story of Love“, and that will take place in the Zofin Palace of Prague, by the Prague Sinfonietta and choir, under the baton of Miriam Nemcova.
