Lúthien Rising gives us more on the Lord of the Rings Symphony in Toronto and Kitchener, Ontario:
The event will feature the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony and the Kitchener-Waterloo Philharmonic Choir. It now appears on the KW Philharmonic’s website — including that Howard Shore will be conducting! The rest of the performing groups aren’t listed yet.
The concerts are scheduled for Saturday, June 4, 7:30 p.m., at Kitchener’s Centre in the Square (a hall widely regarded for its excellent acoustics, and for Sunday, June 5, at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at Toronto’s Roy Thomson Hall (a hall that’s better than it used to be at least – http://www.roythomson.com/home.cfm). Neither event has been announced by the halls themselves.
