With the superb first trumpet of the NZSO, Jon Dante celebrating the end of a series of some 29(?) sessions with the NZSO. Making music with the NZSO was wonderful and I look forward to working with them again — not only are they a superb concert orchestra, they are a remarkable “film orchestra” — they read difficult music accurately right out of “the chute”.

At 12 noon today, TheOneRing.net staff will be presenting An Unofficial Sneak Peek: The Desolation of Smaug in Room 1A14 at the New York Comic-Con.
Join us then! But if you’re going to NYCC, be sure to get in line early — the room may be full!
Plus a quick reminder: swing by the TORn stand at the Con at Booth 3008, particularly if you’re on the hunt for our merchandise. As we’ve previously announced, many of our current designs are being retired and this will be your last opportunity a whole bunch of our awesome t-shirts, buttons and other goodies!
