The One Ring

April 8, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Wait, what? There’s a Lord of the Rings Symphony? Well, that sounds like a must hear event for any LOTR fan. More than just music, the Denver Philharmonic Orchestra combines high quality music concerts with fun activities before and after the performance to create a one-of-a-kind musical evening experience.

Tickets are $10 – $20, and kids 12 and under are free. Tickets available soon.

Venue: TBA

The Music:

The musical journey begins with Les Francs-Juges, Hector Berlioz’s medieval musical tale of triumph over judicial tyranny. DPO principal flute Aaron Wille leads you into the world of Ernest Bloch’s lyrical Suite Modale. The evening concludes with Johan De Meij’s epic Lord of the Rings Symphony based on the novel by J.R.R. Tolkien. DPO Associate Conductor S. Mordecai Fuhrman conducts The One Ring.
