We are happy to announce the ticket pre-sale for the final gala concert of the 8th 'Filmmusiktage Sachsen-Anhalt' on October 10, 2015 at the Opera House Halle. Again this year the 'Staatskapelle Halle' under the direction of Bernd Ruf will arrange an unforgettable evening with film music.
Special guest at this year's concert are the israeli singer Irit Dekel with her accompanist Eldad Zitrin. They have their roots in the melting pot Tel Aviv. In 2014 they published their LP "Last of Songs" in which they combine oriental influences with jazz and pop and enchant their audiences.

Sounds of Heimat
How does "Heimat" (home) sound and how important is (the individual) "Heimat" as a source of inspiration? What shapes beside the artistic virtuosity the style of a film composer? Can you find the native background in a composer's music who writes a score for Hollywood? – Under this year's motto "Sounds of Heimat" the 8th "Filmmusiktage Sachsen-Anhalt" (film music days Saxony Anhalt) focus on the creative process of the composers and have a closer look at the various influences of the factor "Heimat". From October 4 to 10 film music experts, film composers, film makers, creative young talents and enthusiasts will make Halle (Saale) a center of film music. In workshops, discussions, panels, lectures and master classes the participants reflect on previous and the latest works under the view point of the motto.

The program will be framed by additional concerts, a reading session, a workshop for children and teenagers, films and film talks, the orchestration masterclass and the film music radio.

The TICKETS FOR THE CONCERT are available at the local theater and concert box office or online at the web shop. As this highlight was sold out the last years it might be worthwhile saving them early.
