The Lord of the Rings Symphony

Last night, for Lady Lori's birthday, we (and her mother) went to the Lord of the Rings Symphony. Howard Shore's music was beautifully played and sung. It was performed by the Spokane Symphony, the Spokane Symphony Chorale, and the Spokane Area Children’s Chorus. Alastair Willis was the conductor. Kaitlyn Lusk sang the solos exquisitely and is so very poised for a 16 or 17 year old (!!). I couldn't believe she was so young.

The whole experience was wonderful. You can read more about the performance here.

Here is the program of songs they performed:
