About this Event

J.R.R. Tolkien’s service in World War I greatly inspired the creation of Middle Earth, and this free educational concert focuses on those connections while paired with musical works inspired by Tolkien including Annie Lennox’s Into the West, Howard Shore’s score to The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, and Johan De Meij’s dynamic Symphony No. 1, “The Lord of the Rings.”
