Since the very origins of the Motion Picture, musical accompaniment has been used to complement and even improve events happening on the big screen.  A good film score keeps the story moving and illustrates the protagonists’ inner worlds with the capacity to keep you on the edge of your seat! 

Katherine Hunka directs The Magic of the Movies, showcasing some of Hollywood’s best film music, from classic movie scores to today’s most popular soundtracks.   Katherine has injected unprecedented creativity and unique artistic style in this movie roller-coaster.

To evoke more atmosphere, a selection of these colourful arrangements feature the accordion, played with acrobatic panache by Dermot Dunne with some surprises from ICO members.
