April 21, 2009 - New York, NY - Devoted fans of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic The Lord of the Rings have read the books, they've seen Peter Jackson's Academy® Award-winning films, and now they will have a chance to experience film composer Howard Shore's Academy® and Grammy®-winning score to The Fellowship of the Ring live at Radio City Music Hall on Friday, October 9th and Saturday October 10th. For this extraordinary event, 300 musicians - a 70-piece orchestra and a 230-member choir - have been gathered to perform the complete score to 2001's The Fellowship of the Ring live as the motion picture, minus the soundtrack, is shown to the audience on a massive screen towering above the stage.

Switzerland's 21st Century Orchestra, under the baton of Maestro Ludwig Wicki and featuring the Collegiate Chorale, the Brooklyn Youth Choir Academy, and vocal soloist Kaitlyn Lusk, will perform Shore's nearly three-hour epic score synchronized to picture. Shore will introduce each evening's performance in a pre-concert lecture with Doug Adams, author of The Music of the Lord of the Rings Films, and will be available to greet fans at additional events scheduled throughout the weekend.

This once-in-a-lifetime, family-friendly event, held at the most prestigious concert venue in the world, is a milestone affair not to be missed by fans of The Lord of the Rings and classical music lovers everywhere! Tickets are now on-sale and make the perfect holiday gift for a family outing over the Columbus Day weekend. Don't miss it!
