One book to rule them all

Well naturally The Lord of the Rings topped the Sunday Star-Times Top 50 books survey. But as books editor Iain Sharp discovered, there were a good number of surprises in the rest of the list. When we asked Sunday Star-Times readers to name their favourite books, the letters, emails and online responses came pouring in. The range of titles nominated (more than 2800) was extraordinary – everything from Summa Contra Gentiles by Saint Thomas Aquinas to Dav Pilkey’s entertainment for small fry Captain Underpants and the Invasion of the Incredibly Naughty Cafeteria Ladies from Outer Space (And The Subsequent Assault of the Equally Evil Lunchroom Zombie Nerds).

‘Music from the Movies’ in April

Nimfea writes: I was listening to WQXR, the New York Times’ classical radio station, this morning when I heard about a one time event with the New York Philharmonic on April 12th called ‘Music from the Movies’. The event is essentially made up of many famous movie themes, going all the way back to music like the love theme from Spartacus, the overture to El Cid and all the way to Far and Away, Schindler’s List and….LoTR! What better way to conclude the night than a little bit of Howard Shore’s genius? [More]

Ticket prices are $75.00, $43.50 and $19.50.

All 3 performances last year in Pittsburgh were sold out! This year the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra will be conducted by John Mauceri (johnmauceri.com) as he leads more than 200 musicians and vocalists through Middle Earth with Howard Shore’s amazing score. Accompanying John Mauceri will be two soloists: Susan Egan (susanegan.net) and Tammy Tyburczy.

It should be noted that this is an early opportunity for TORN readers to purchase tickets before the general public is made aware of the concert dates and ticket availability. No major advertising has been done for the shows yet.

In addition to the concerts there will be a Q&A before each show. There will also be a post-concert event where attendees who purchase tickets at the $75.00 level (only 208 per show are available at this price) can meet John Mauceri and the soloists.

There is also a benefit dinner for the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra preceding each concert. The menu for this dinner is derived from Emerald Took’s “Regional Cooking From Middle-Earth: Recipes Of The Third Age”. Tickets are $65.00/person and may be purchased at the same time seat tickets are purchased. As this is a benefit the cost of this ticket is tax deductible. The conductor and vocal soloists will likely attend this affair. There is a theme for each night’s dinner. Friday night the theme is “A Shire Homecoming.” Saturday night the theme is “The Coronation Of A King.” The menu for each evening will be different and will include a broad and exotic array of choices including vegetarian (and of course mushrooms!).
