The Hollywood in Vienna film music festival, which will be celebrated on October 18 & 19, 2019, has just announced that Academy Award, Golden Globe, and BAFTA nominated composer Marc Shaiman, will be part of this year’s edition.
Entitled ‘A Night at the Oscars’, Hollywood in Vienna 2019 will take audiences on a glamorous journey through eight decades of film music, having Marc Shaiman play the piano during the annual gala-concert, for the piece ‘The Place Where Lost Things Go’ from Disney’s ‘Mary Poppins Returns’.
In Marc Shaiman’s words “I am simply overwhelmed that ‘Hollywood in Vienna’ is once again playing a composition of mine in the very town where the masters of music walked and worked. My co-lyricist Scott Wittman and I are grateful and humbled to be included at this wonderful event at the Konzerthaus.”
As it was previously announced, Gabriel Yared, who will be this year’s central guest, will receive Hollywood in Vienna’s iconic Max Steiner Film Music Achievement Award, at the gala concert ceremony on Saturday, October 19th.
