What can I say, this is a must attend evening for every soundtrack lover.
The World Soundtrack Awards are the 'Oscars of film music' in a way. They are handed out each year, to the best composer of the year, the best score of the year, the best original song, the discovery of the year etc...
Every year there are special guests that will come and have their music performed by full orchestra. Always present is the discovery of last year, and then some other distiguished guests.
This year the line up is impressive (to say the least): Hans Zimmer, Howard Shore, Elliot Goldenthal, Giorgo Moroder and elected discovery of 2010 Abel Korzeniowski will all perform pieces.
A lot of film music fans are gathering in Ghent next weekend (some of which already met in Ubeda last summer) and I can tell you that we have one ticket still up for sale (as one person had to cancel), so if somebody wants to join us, feel free to contact me.

PS: Bear, Elmer Bernstein won an Honorary Award in 1998, and in return he wrote the music that is used when the awards are presented. So every year the WSA play a lttle bit of Berstein music, and last year (at the 10th aniversary of the WSA) they played the theme of the Magnificent Seven to honor him once more...
