HMW Summer Academy 2020
Because of COVID 19 restrictions we had to hold the annual summer course exclusively on Zoom, but managed to perform the annual concert LIVE:
Impressions of our “Hollywood in Baden” Concert 2020
Despite the current global situation, Hollywood Music Workshop, under the inspirational guidance of its director Lilo Bellotto was able to organize this beautiful concert & HMW 2020 afterparty outside our usual home Casino Baden.
The marvellous Hollywood Jazz Combo took us back to the golden years of Hollywood featuring the wonderful arrangements of Grammy Award-winning composer/arranger Nan Schwartz. Our lovely soloist, soprano Arabella Fenyves guided us through England with melodies from “Downton Abbey” written by John Lunn. And last but not least the young upcoming composer Roman Kariolou presented Viennas enchanting versatility with his music to the TV Series “Hotel Sacher”, “Maria Theresia” and “Vienna Blood”
A big ‘‘Thank you!‘‘ to the Hollywood Jazz Band, Arabella Fenyves, Nan Schwartz, Roman Kariolou, John Lunn, our partners Casino Baden, City of Baden, the government of Lower Austria & all participants for making this possible.
Looking forward to next year!

What an experience! Learning from Hollywood´s masters who are not only the best in their craft, but who are also such musically sensitive, wonderful, real human beings!
