Vienna, the music capital of the world, will once again be in the spotlight with the Hollywood in Vienna gala, taking place at the historic Vienna Concert Hall on October 16, 2015. Many Hollywood & Broadway Stars will attend and perform at the red-carpet event. Apart from Oscar-nominated and Grammy-winning Guest of Honor James Newton Howard (“The Hunger Games”, “Maleficent”, ‘The Dark Knight”), Hollywood in Vienna is excited to welcome composer Richard Bell  (Stephen King‘s “IT”) plus another thirty Hollywood guests and international media representatives. ORF (Austrian Radio Broadcasting) will broadcast the gala, for the third time, in 35 countries worldwide.

A top-class selection of international talent will perform at this year’s gala, which is titled “Tales of Mystery”.

The American R&B singer and 16-time Grammy-Nominee Brian McKnight, who has performed duets with Justin Timberlake, Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera and Celine Dion in the past, will perform together with Bosnian Edita “Madita” Malov?i? and South-African singer Velile Mchunu (Hamburg Production of “The Lion King”). In addition, acclaimed Austrian Soprano Daniela Fally will give her “Film Music” debut at Hollywood in Vienna. “I’m looking very much forward to the challenge, as film music, unlike any other art form, is able to support and enhance the emotional life of the character in a movie“, says Fally.

The musical performers will be supported by the Choir Neue Wiener Stimmen, the children’s choir Superar and the Afro-Choir Insingizi & Friends. Making his debut as a guest conductor of the ORF Radio-Symphony Orchestra is Keith Lockhart, conductor and music director of the Boston Pops. The Emcee of the gala will be the German host Steven Gätjen.
