Heart of Hollywood

In celebration of this year’s Aberdeen Standard Investments Opening Event: LA Phil at Tynecastle, the International Festival worked with local schools around Tynecastle Park to present a workshop that explored orchestras and the work of the LA Phil, film scores and their importance to cinema, and a celebration of Hollywood, all culminating in each pupil creating their own star for a Walk of Fame which will be on display in the stadium during the concert.
