Concerts Krakow Film Music Festival 2020 announced

The Polish city of Krakow hosts a film music festival (FMF) each year in May. Visitors can enjoy concerts, meetings with composers and workshops about film music over a period of 7 days. We have been attending this festival for quite some time, even before the launch of this site. If you are curious about previous editions, you can find more information about them in our Krakow FMF reports.

The festival will be held from May 26 to June 1, 2020, and will consist of the following concerts.

May 26 – Cinema Chorale

It is the second time the festival produces a concert with a strong focus on a choir. This time they also added a piano to the mix.

May 31 – The Music of John Powell

Composer John Powell will host a concert with his own music. Since Gavin Greenaway is conducting, it will probably like the concert they both have done in Hamburg in 2018. Some guests for this concert are still unannounced, but at least ASCAP president and songwriter Paul Williams will be present.
