Borklog: One entry

1 August 2004

Last night we went down into Pittsburgh to see Howard Shore conducting his Lord of the RIngs Symphony featuring music from the movies, accompanied by storyboard and illustrations from the film. I was as a really great concert. I like the soundtracks, but hearing it live adds another dimension to the experience. The audience around me was better behaved last night than at previous concerts. We were up in the "great circle" area of Heinz hall, those quasi box-seat kind of things. The 2 folks behind us were gum-poppers, there was a copuple with spiked hair in the row ahead of us that chatted through the second half, and down on the floor were a pair of pre-teen boys pretending they were in the back seat of a road trip. sigh.
