This time FIMUCITÉ Youth Orchestra (Joven Orquesta Sinfónica FIMUCITÉ), conducted by Maestro José Antonio Cubas, will setting us forth on a musical voyage exploring the music of the greatest movie monsters - King Kong, Godzilla or the dinosaurs from ‘Jurassic Park’. featuring movie soundtracks from great composers such as John Barry, John Williams, Mario Nascimbene, Ramin Djawadi or Jerome Moross.

The amazing concert program will include movie soundtracks from international productions filmed in the Canary Islands. ‘Clash of The Titans’ featuring the Kraken, ‘Moby Dick’ starring a giant whale, or ‘When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth’ and ‘One Million Years B.C’ featuring prehistoric creatures.

This year’s recital adds a new chapter in the common project between FIMUCITÉ and its polish counterpart, the Krakow Film Music Festival (FMF), that involves an exchange programme between the young musicians of their respective youth orchestras. As such, at the end of May we saw FMF celebrating its eleventh edition with the participation of four students from the Professional Conservatory of Music of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and the Higher Conservatory of Music of the Canary Islands: two violinists, one cellist, and one violist. Likewise, in the twelfth edition of FIMUCITÉ next September, the Polish festival will see four of its young musicians performing in the concert ‘Colossus of the Silver Screen’. This is the first international student exchange of young musicians held between two European film music festivals.

There will also be matinee peformance of “Colossus of the Silver Screen” for schools on Thursday 27th September at 10:30 am. in Auditorio Antonio Lecuona.

The Tenerife International Film Music Festival 12 (FIMUCITÉ XII) that will be held from September 21st – 30th has been made possible thanks to the support and sponsorship of the Cabildo Insular de Tenerife, the Canary Islands Government, Santa Cruz de Tenerife City Council, the companies AUDI, Dorada Especial, & Teleférico del Teide, and the collaboration of SGAE – the Spanish General Society of Authors and Publishers.
