29-95.com has posted a friendly reminder that LOTR: FOTR Live will play Houston, Texas this coming weekend. And since they've kindly given a shout-out to the Music of LOTR book, I feel obliged to link to their helpful article:


If you glance at the Houston Symphony’s recent “Pops” schedule, you might think these film-plus-live-orchestra programs are getting to be a hobbit. In this case, you’d be right. It’s a full-length screening of the epic, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, with its orchestral score played by the Houston Symphony, under conductor Ludwig Wicki.

More than 250 musicians and singers will perform the original score composed by Howard Shore for the first film of the trilogy. Wicki, the orchestra and chorus follow the beginning of Frodo and Sam’s epic quest.

The music of The Lord of the Rings is counted among film music’s most complex and comprehensive works.

“This unique performance sets the score to the film, but allows the music to bear the narrative weight, creating a wholly new and dramatic live concert experience,” writes Doug Adams, author The Music of the Lord of the Rings Films. when 7:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday where Jones Hall, 615 Louisiana tickets $20-$112 info 713-224-7575
