A nine-city West Coast tour of the highly anticipated The Lord of the Rings In Concert: The Fellowship of the Ring begins, featuring Howard Shore’s complete Academy Award® and Grammy®–winning score performed live on-stage by more than 250 musicians. Celebrated Maestro Ludwig Wicki, the preeminent conductor of Howard Shore’s _Ring _music, will conduct all performances. Joining Maestro Wicki is soprano Kaitlyn Lusk, who has toured the world as a soloist in The Lord of the Rings Symphony.

 

Peter Jackson’s complete award-winning epic will be projected digitally on an immense 60-foot screen using an uncompressed high definition source with two 20k lumen projectors while the combined forces of the Munich Symphony Orchestra, Pacific Chorale, and Phoenix Boys Choir bring the music of Middle-earth to life.

_The Lord of the Rings – In Concert: The Fellowship of the Ring _kicks off a three-year celebration during which each of the three Academy Award®-winning films will be performed In Concert upon the tenth anniversary of its release. _The Fellowship of the Ring _(2001) will tour in 2011, The Two Towers (2002) in 2012, and the grand finale, The Return of the King (2003), in 2013.

 

Composer Howard Shore said, “My first score for The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Fellowship of the Ring, was the beginning of my journey into the world of Tolkien, and I will always hold a special fondness for the music and the experience.”
