While our attention has been largely directed toward New Zealand, the crowd in Lucerne, Switzerland has been preparing one heck of a festival. I'll be present for the majority of the week -- March 26 through April 2 -- and will involved in a number of lectures and performances while there. My tentative schedule is below. It's always possible something will change, but I think this is pretty close to what we can expect:
March 27 -- 11.00 -- Themes of LOTR concert (moderator)
March 28 -- 19.30 -- Symphonic Film Music of Howard Shore (pre-concert introduction)
March 29 -- 18.00 -- Lecture: Overview - Howard Shore and The Music of the LOTR Films
March 30 -- 18.00 -- Lecture: Percussion and Rhythms
March 31 -- 18.00 -- Lecture: Ethnic Instruments
April 1 -- 18.00 -- Lecture: Chorus and Solo Voices
April 2 -- 18.00 -- Lecture: The Orchestra
It's quite possible I'll be signing books after select performances as well. If interested, please keep your eyes on the blog (or Twitter) for announcements.
Remember, the full roster of events is available at HERE.
It's going to be an amazing week!
