Music is responsible for over 30% of an audiences response to a film. There is no more exciting example of the profound support music gives to film than Howard Shore’s score for The Lord of the Rings films, said Christopher Dedrick. This will be a rare opportunity to look beneath the surface and see how such a score is created and performed.
The Lord of the Rings Symphony is Howard Shores compilation in six movements of his two-time Academy-award winning score for the popular and epic movie trilogy based on Tolkiens internationally beloved fantasy novels.
Panelist Christopher Dedrick received a 2004 Genie Award for his score for Guy Maddins film The Saddest Music In The World starring Isabella Rossellini. He received critical acclaim for the score for the CBC Television miniseries, Shattered City: The Halifax Explosion; and a new Rhombus Media feature, Childstar, directed by Don McKellar. He is the arranger and composer for the world-renowned Canadian Brass. Howard Dyck, CBC host of Choral Concert is the conductor of the Kitchener Waterloo Philharmonic Choir and has prepared the Choir for these performances of Howard Shores music. Author Doug Adams is a Chicago-based musician and writer. His new book, The Music of The Lord of the Rings Films will be published in the fall of 2005. He has regularly appeared on panels with Howard Shore.
