FMF Youth Orchestra
Monika Bachowska — director
After taking on cinematic monsters during last year’s festival, the FMF Youth Orchestra comes back stronger than ever. After their first ever performance at the largest festival stage at TAURON Arena Kraków, the young musicians present their honed skills to the audience assembled in Lusławice. The concert is led by Monika Bachowska, the ensemble’s conductor since its inception. Sound like a fairy tale? Definitely! All the more so because the concert resounds with some of the greatest hits from Disney films. We are taken to the magical worlds of The Lion King, Frozen and Aladdin by the music from beloved Disney animations and songs hummed by people of all ages.
The Lusławice concert stars Magda Wasylik, familiar to FMF audiences from her performances in Disney in Concert: Frozen and Film Music Gala: Animations. Exploring films entire generations have been raised on will be a real treat for the whole family. But we aren’t revealing all our secrets just yet: you will discover more details about the programme and additional soloists in the coming months.
The international dimension of the FMF Youth Orchestra project is stressed once again by the ensemble’s collaboration with the FIMUCITÉ festival in Tenerife. In 2019, the orchestra once again includes students from the Conservatorio Profesional de Música de Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
The concert is a repeat of the performance on 17 May in Kraków.
