Don’t miss Pixar in Concert. Iconic films to live music

— ”Toy Story”, ”Brave”, ”Finding Nemo”, ”Cars” — these are only a few titles of popular Pixar animated films whose music will be heard on 30 May at Krakow Arena – one of Europe’s most modern venues. We invite you to this unique concert to celebrate International Children’s Day. The Beethoven Academy Orchestra, under the baton of the American conductor Erik Ochsner, features outstanding soloists and prominent musicians. This concert is a real treat for film and music fans alike — says Izabela Helbin, Director of the Krakow Festival Office. 

Since Toy Story — a film loved by millions of children around the world — Pixar has changed the world of animation forever. Every production by this studio is a new unusual and touching story with new captivating heroes. Disney ● Pixar’s films are universal stories about the power of friendship, courage, love and dreams. Pixar’s artists take us to a world of monsters, ants, toys, or to the space to tell us about ourselves. The scores created by Randy Newman (Toy Story), Thomas Newman (WALL•E), Michael Giacchino (Odlot) and Patrick Doyle (Brave) are an inseparable element of the films: enhancing the film’s atmosphere and giving the films’ heroes unique characters. Pixar productions have won twenty seven Oscars – the most desired award in the film industry.
