by Ashton Christensen

If you’re a fan of J.R.R. Tolkien’s world-renowned fantasy world, you better put a big mark in your calendar. 

Why you ask..? Because Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit will be in town!

On September 19th, 2022, you have the chance to experience the amazing music from the movies. It will be performed by a 50-piece symphony orchestra, a choir, and the “Tolkien Ensemble” at Aalborg Congress & Culture Center (AKKC).

Through music, the audience can experience the threat of Mordor, the fierce attacks of the Black Riders, beautiful lyrical melodies of the elves, and the cheerful world of the hobbits. Nearly 100 performers will present a musical version of Middle-earth at AKKC.

An empathetic experience

The concert will feature versions of the legendary film score by Howard Shore, Ed Sheeran, and others. The orchestra’s adventurous music will pull the audience into the scenes and emotions of the movies.

Illustrations from the stories will be shown on large screens, interacting with the music to present the audience with an unforgettable evening.

The nearly 100 performers, from actors and musicians to the vocalists of The Shire Choir, are praised for their ability to engulf audiences into the mythological world of Tolkien. A musical journey in the footsteps of Frodo and the others from The Fellowship of the Ring.

Award-winning film music

When the Lord of The Rings books were initially published, they immediately became classics.

The same goes for the filmization of them. Peter Jackson’s Lord of The Rings film trilogy celebrates its 20th anniversary as one of the largest and most influential film series ever. 

Film critics and fans praised each movie for innovative special effects, acting, set design, musical works, and emotional depth. They won 17 Oscars – partly due to the stunning music by Howard Shore.

Howard is one of the most important film composers of recent times.

His most famous work is the music for the Lord of the Rings trilogy, for which he received three Grammys, two Golden Globes, and two Oscars. The soundtrack from the second movie in The Hobbit film series, which included the pop-star Ed Sheeran song I See Fire, became a mega-hit worldwide.
