The World Soundtrack Awards will celebrate its 22nd edition concert and gala ceremony on Saturday, 22 Oct 2022 at 20h, having Mark Isham as the guest of honor of this edition.
This year, for the first time since 2009, World Soundtrack Awards will take place in the Bijloke Concert Hall, in Ghent (Belgium), which reopened in 2020 after a thorough renovation.
There, the Brussels Philharmonic, conducted by maestro Dirk Brossé, will play a selection of works by Mark Isham and by Nainita Desai (winner of the Discovery of the Year Award 2021) during the presentation of the film music awards.
Film Fest Ghent will also dedicate its annual Music for Film album to Mark Isham’s body of work. For this album, the composer’s music will be performed by the Brussels Philharmonic and conducted by Film Fest Ghent music director Dirk Brossé, with Mark Isham himself playing the trumpet. The album will be released in the run-up to the 22nd World Soundtrack Awards.
On his invitation to be guest of honour, Mark Isham says: “I am very grateful to be honoured by the WSA this year. This is such a highly respected organisation who does so much to support and promote the art of film composition. It will be a great treat to perform and take part in all of the events.”
