lORD OF THE RINGS: The return of the king

 We are performing "Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" with The Cleveland Orchestra and Blossom Festival Chorus and would love to have you sing with us! You can view a pdf of the schedule below or you can view the dates on the Google Calendar. 

If you are interested and available, please email me (atyler@clevelandorchestra.com) so that we can include you on our roster and email list for the summer. I will check-in with everyone in mid-June to confirm availability and see if any additional members want to participate. (in case your availability has changed). 

There is a solo part for Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. We will have auditions on Tuesday, July 2nd from 5:30pm to 7pm. Singers interested in auditioning will want to prepare and memorize all three audition excerpts as shown below under the "Practice tracks" sections. You can view the music and listen to the practice tracks to guide you in your practice. The booking link to schedule an audition is also below.

There is no homework just yet. Only great quotes from the LOTR movies for now: 

  • "I don't know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve." —Bilbo

  • "One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them; one ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them." —Gandalf/The One Ring

  • "What about second breakfast?" —Pippin

  • "One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its Black Gates are guarded by more than just orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep." —Boromi

  • "Nobody tosses a dwarf!" —Gimli

  • "Even the smallest person can change the course of the future." —Galadriel

  • "I made a promise, Mr Frodo, a promise. 'Don't you leave him, Samwise Gamgee.' And I don't mean to." —Sam

  • ["What's taters, precious?"] "Po-tay-toes. Boil'em, mash'em, stick'em in a stew." —Sam

  • ["What's happening out there?" —Gimli] "Shall I describe it to you? Or would you like me to find you a box?" —Legolas

  • "It's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines, it will shine out the clearer." —Sam

  • "I am no man." —Éowyn

  • "Something stirs in the East. A sleepless malice. The eye of the enemy is moving." —Legolas

  • "My friends, you bow to now one." —Aragorn
