University Wind Symphony Concert: Music inspired by “THE LORD OF THE RINGS”
February 24 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm$
The Binghamton University Wind Symphony, directed by Daniel Fabricius, will present “The Lord of the Rings” Concert at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 24 in the Osterhout Concert Theater. This concert is a celebration of the 30th anniversary of “Symphony No. 1 (The Lord of the Rings)” by Johan de Meij which is inspired by the epic fantasy novel by J.R.R. Tolkien. This award-winning composition has been a popular addition to the wind band literature. The program will also include other “inspired” composers and compositions such as Richard Wagner’s “Liebestod” from Tristan and Isolde, Richard Rodgers’ “Victory at Sea” and John Williams’ “March of the Resistance” from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
