Critical Hit performance at Krakow Film Music Festival 2015

I just got back from an incredibly fun trip to Krakow, Poland, where I played a show at the Krakow Film Music Festival with Critical Hit on May 27th! The line-up consisted of Sara Andon (flute), Tina Guo (cello), Caroline Campbell (violin), Kevin Dooley (drums), Aleksander Milwiw-Baron (guitar), Natalia Brzozowska (bass), and Michael Gluck (synth). 

This performance marked Critical Hit's very first international show.

Our friends at the festival did an extraordinary job at producing and programming a video and light show for our concert, and the end product was stunning.  

Here's a video of our performance of "To Zanarkand" from Final Fantasy X: 

The audience seemed to really like out show: they gave us a standing ovation at the end. Afterwards we were greeted by many members of the audience asking for signatures and photos. We also got a fun write-up the next day from journalist Ray Bennett. 



After some more panels the next day, some band members and I went to explore the truly beautiful city of Krakow.

What a great festival, what lovely people, and what a beautiful city! I do hope to be back next year!
