Program Notes

The Fellowship of the Ring is the first of the three-movie series, already recognized with an Academy Award®. Here's a stunning medley of the most memorable tunes from Howard Shore's film score for bands. Included tunes are Many Meetings, The Great River, Gollum, The Breaking of the Fellowship and In Dreams. Ranging from dramatic and bold to fluid and majestic, this is a diverse, musical medley.
