An Epic Journey Begins

Friday 16 October 2009, 7pm, DeVos Performance Hall, Grand Rapids MI
One Ring to rule them all,
One Ring to find them.
One Ring to bring them all
and in the darkness bind them.

The Grand Rapids Symphony is going to do a live orchestra performance to the film The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings. How cool! I might have to go see this. Ticket prices are from $32 to $90.

Take this once in a lifetime journey through Tolkien’s Middle Earth.
Experience the epic film Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring like never before with live orchestral accompaniment. Watch the visually stunning full-length film projected above the orchestra and chorus as they perform Howard Shore's unforgettable score live!

A Long Time Ago, In A Galaxy Far Away...

When I had graduated from Northwestern and worked first delivering Chicago Tribunes and then for a couple of years at the Northwestern University Library, there were times when I didn't have a lot of money. And one regret I have is that the Chicago Symphony did a live concert to the epic 1927 silent movie Napoléon -- this would probably be the "USA:235 min (1981 restored version)", because the performance ran for 4 to 5 hours, included two intermissions and you could order boxed lunches, as I recall. Alas, tickets were like $100. But dammit, I should've gone anyway.
