On October 15th and 16th, the ‘Hollywood in Vienna’ event are honouring legendary Composer James Newton Howard by having two concerts dedicated to his music, and presenting him with the Max Steiner Award. For those who are going, there is also a Symposium and Workshops happening in the same week, that many Composers and people from the industry are taking part in, including of course James Newton Howard himself, who will be talking about his career and helping young composers in the workshops.
It is a wonderful opportunity to get personal insight and to meet him as well, along with several other key figures.
