NWU Symphonic Band to Perform Lord of the Rings Symphony
The Nebraska Wesleyan University Symphonic Band will perform an upcoming concert featuring the five-movement symphony “Lord of the Rings.”
The symphony is based on the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien. It consists of five separate movements, each illustrating a personage or an important episode from the book. The symphony was written between 1984 and 1987 by Johan de Meij and premiered in Brussels in 1988. It was later awarded first prize in the Sudler International Wind Band Composition Competition in Chicago.
The Nebraska Wesleyan University Symphonic Band concert will be held Sunday, December 6 at 3 p.m. in O’Donnell Auditorium, located at 50th Street and Huntington Ave.
