GRAND RAPIDS SYMPHONY OPENS OCTOBER 15 LORD OF THE RINGS REHEARSAL TO PUBLIC
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. Oct. 8, 2009 The Grand Rapids Symphony has opened for sale to the public the final rehearsal of Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring. The final rehearsal will take place Thursday, October 15, 7 pm in DeVos Performance Hall.
This event was added due to the significant demand, and limited ticket availability, for the Friday, October 16 concert performance.
Rehearsal attendees will experience all the elements of Friday’s performance: the movie projected on a 20 by 48 foot wide screen as the Symphony, guest vocalist, Symphony Chorus and Youth Chorus perform the music score. This is a rare opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at how the finishing touches are put on a Symphony performance. Because this is a working rehearsal, there may be starts and stops during the movie. Depending on the rehearsal’s progress, the movie in its entirety may not be shown.
