The Verge reports today that an orchestra consisting of 250 people is set to perform during two screenings of the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy. New York City’s David H. Koch Theater will play host to this grand event from April 8-12 2015. Although screenings of the films have been accompanied with a full orchestra before, this will be the first time in America that the complete trilogy will be presented live in concert.
From the David H. Kock Theater:
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy In Concert, at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center, features the 21st Century Symphony Orchestra & Chorus of Lucerne, Switzerland, conducted by Ludwig Wicki, which specializes in bringing films and their scores to life, and performs an annual program of film concerts at the KKL Luzern.
