Rings Symphony in Pittsburgh tix on sale Monday

Tickets for "The Lord of the Rings Symphony" in Pittsburgh, PA on July 22 & 23, 2005 go on sale on Monday. This is a special early opportunity to purchase tickets before the general public is made aware of the concert dates and ticket availability. No major advertising has been done for the shows yet.

All 3 performances last year in Pittsburgh were sold out! This year the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra will be conducted by John Mauceri as he leads more than 200 musicians and vocalists through Middle Earth with Howard Shore’s amazing score. Accompanying John Mauceri will be two soloists: Susan Egan and Tammy Tyburczy.

In addition to the concerts there will be a Q&A; before each show. There will also be a post-concert event where attendees who purchase tickets at the $75.00 level (only 208 per show are available at this price) can meet John Mauceri and the soloists.

There is also a benefit dinner for the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra preceding each concert. The menu for this dinner is derived from Emerald Took’s "Regional Cooking From Middle-Earth: Recipes Of The Third Age". Tickets are $65.00 per person and may be purchased at the same time seat tickets are purchased. As this is a benefit the cost of this ticket is tax deductible. The conductor and vocal soloists will likely attend this affair. There is a theme for each night’s dinner. Friday night the theme is "A Shire Homecoming." Saturday night the theme is "The Coronation Of A King." The menu for each evening will be different and will include a broad and exotic array of choices including vegetarian (and of course mushrooms!).

Tickets will be available via the internet at the Pittsburgh Symphony web site, and at the box office (phone 412-392-4900 or toll free at 1-800-743-8560) on Monday, March 28, 2005 at 9:00AM. Ticket prices are $75.00, $43.50 and $19.50.
