The Soncinemad Organizing Committee is particularly honored to announce the apical event of Soncinemad 2007; world-famous American composer ALAN SILVESTRI will conduct his own film music under a special symphonic concert which will crown the 2nd Soncinemad film music festival of Madrid, Spain, June the 29th to July the 1st, 2007.
Silvestri will head a world-exclusive symphonic concert for full orchestra and choir with the repertoire covering a large part of his best, most beloved and memorable works to date.
The Soncinemad Organizing committee is thrilled and extremely honored by the presence of Alan Silvestri in Madrid this summer for a world-premiere performance of his career’s best moments, a spectacular concert and an amazing experience to be for everyone involved.
Alan Silvestri and his family are the festival’s apex and our principal supporting source; something which flatters and honors us but also renders us through intense and careful preparations for the festivals’ perfect conducting.
Alan Silvestri is currently putting together the program for the concert, an evidently difficult task while the composer’s long-time career covers vast grounds and there is an amazing variety of impressive scores to choose from for the concert. Silvestri ’s most known credits under his filmography include Forrest Gump, the Back to the Future trilogy, Cast Away, Contact, Predator, The Mummy Returns, Van Helsing, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Abyss and Identity.
Soncinemad 2007’s events will begin with a very special film music concert tribute to all our guests and with the orchestra performing suites from the Soncinemad 2007 panelists’ best works introduced and led by Christopher Young, Honorary President of Soncinemad, who will also present some of his music as part of an Extraordinary concert the 29th June.
Our first installment of the Soncinemad festival last year in Madrid was led by two warmly-embraced and celebrated symphonic concerts which featured Harry Gregson-Williams and Trevor Jones respectively, the later also released as a highly successful double CD commercial release. The whole of Soncinemad’s events also included seminars and conferences with media coverage, guests, speakers and panelists, including Hans Zimmer , Christopher Young and Dario Marianelli .
Over 4,000 fans, composers and film music professionals attended the festival and embraced our efforts with particular warmth and support.
Our additional task at the moment is working on confirming the attendance of a particularly strong additional line-up of composers, both from Europe and North America. The already-confirmed team of composers is very impressive but all the names of the attendants along with the seminars’ schedule will be shortly announced.
All the attendants will benefit from special accommodation discounts in specific hotels which will be exclusive to Soncinemad’s guests and located straight in the heart of Madrid, right next to the afore-mentioned Soncinemad places of activities.
