Yesterday I went to the Lord of the Rings Houston Symphony Orchestra in downtown Houston.

They played music from all the movies.

Heres a list of all they did, taken from the pamphlet they give you, a movement is when they stop for a moment or two, all the songs in a movement are played continuously:
______________________________________________
The Fellowship of the Ring

Movement One: The prophecy - Concerning Hobbits - The Shadow of the Past - A Short Cut to Mushrooms - The Old Forest - A Knife in the Dark

Movement Two: Many Meetings - A Ring Goes South - A Journey in the Dark - The Bridge of Khazad-dûm - Lothlórien - Gandalf's Lament - Farewell to Lórien - The Great River - The Breaking of the Fellowship

INTERMISSION


The Two Towers

Movement Three: Foundations of Stone - The Taming of Smeagol - The Riders of Rohan - The Black Gate is Closed - Evenstar - The White Rider - Treebeard - The Forbidden Pool

Movement Four: The Hornburg - Fourth Eorlingas - Isengard Unleashed - Gollum's Song


The Return of the King

Movement Five: Hope and Memory - The White Tree - The Steward of Gondor - Cirith Ungol - Anduril

Movement Six: The End of All Things - The Return of the King - The Grey Havens - Into the West
______________________________________________

They had someone sing Into the West who was really good a it. The guy who sang Aragorn's song wasn't quite as good as Viggo though. ;)

I fully enjoyed it, except for the annoying, loud, spoiled, over-weight, black girl behind us who couldn't sit still. :indif:

Where did that come from????

That's awesome IG. John Williams usually comes around here once a year to do "music from the movies". But he's not coming this year. :( Glad to hear you enjoyed it.

I ponder that every single day of my life.


Anyways, that sounds awesome, IG. Also, some other good music is from the movie "Cold Mountain". I love the music from that movie. Especially "I wish my baby was born" and "wayfaring stranger". Good stuff.
