a brief history of how HMW came to be

Hollywood Music Workshop was born in 2009 with former school colleagues and very close friends Dimitrie Leivici and Lilo Bellotto reuniting and creating the idea of an international summer workshop program of film music after they had discussed Dimitrie’s successful musical career in the US as a top Hollywood scoring artist and musician.

Together they found the common interest in developing this exiting summer event and with Lilo’s own background as a top musical performer, successful radio moderator with her own broadcasts on film music and a solid managerial background as the daughter of the renowned manager Rudolf Raab the result became this highly sought after film music event called Hollywood Music Workshop in the celebrated musical capitol of Austria!

Over the last six years well known Hollywood composers and musicians such as Conrad Pope, Christopher Young, Nan Schwartz, Bruce Broughton, Blake Neely and Don Williams have been featured in our two locations Klosterneuburg and Baden bei Wien.
