Die Neue Züricher Zeitung calls Christian Schumann “a shining star of the new German conductor generation.” Christian Schumann is rapidly establishing a reputation not only as an opera and symphonic conductor, but as a leading international force in the contemporary and film conducting world across projects including James Bond, Jungle Book, Harry Potter and Star Wars.
For decades, Star Wars — the biggest science fiction saga in film history — has thrilled millions of fans of all generations worldwide, not least through the soundtrack of John Williams, one of the most successful film music composers in the world. Just in time for the 40th anniversary, this mighty space epic begins its journey into the concert hall as a complete audiovisual experience. John Williams’ Oscar, Golden Globe and Grammy award-winning music is performed alongside a live screening of the movie in this Star Wars concert extravaganza!
Christian Schumann performs the Star Wars concert across Germany’s most iconic venues in collaboration with Alegria and Disney with orchestras including City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and Deutsches Filmorchester Babelsberg.
Christian has performed James Bond film-in-concert performances at Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg as well as symphonic and film concerts in the Netherlands including the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. Christian’s performances of Harry Potter take place across Frankfurt, Munich and Milan.
