The tenth edition of Fimucité, which starts in just over a week, is loaded with content and news, and while last week it was announced that during the special Gala Closing Concert (October 1st), Howard Shore himself would take the baton to conduct the orchestra to some of his music, yesterday, an announcement just as interesting was made; the creation of Fimucité Film Scoring Academy.
This initiative is aimed to students and professionals who want to receive specialized training, where prestigious composers Lolita Ritmains, Kristopher Carter and Michael McCuistion, members of the Dynamic Music Partners, will offer a workshop addressed to musicians.
Besides, a seminar for audiovisual composers and students of music composition will be given by Emmy award winner composer Richard Bellis, member of ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers).
The programme is as follows:
All activities are free entry and will be held at Aula Magna del Conservatorio Profesional de Música de Santa Cruz de Tenerife during the festival, and will be sponsored by Cabildo Insular de Tenerife, the Canary Islands Government and Santa Cruz de Tenerife City Council.
Participants to these events will receive an official diploma for their attendance and must request prior registration on the official website of the festival, www.fimucite.com
Furthermore, as part of this initiative, both the tribute to Shirley Walker and the Animated Warner Heroes concerts, to be held at Teatro Guimerá, will have matinee sessions for the school public on September 28th and 29th. This way, Fimucité is committed with promoting culture in order to attract young people, as well as creating new audiences among music and film lovers.
All great initiatives, which will be followed and covered from SoundTrackFest, in attendance to this tenth edition.
