Conference/Concert Update (LOTR Symphony)

Just a quick update regarding the "'Past Watchful Dragons': Fantasy and Faith in the World of C.S. Lewis" conference to be held November 3-5, 2005 on the campus of Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee, USA. Just added to the list of events is the Nashville Symphony's performance of Howard Shore's The Lord of the Rings Symphony, a musical journey into the realm of Middle-Earth that calls to the stage more than 200 musicians and vocalists, including the Nashville Symphony Chorus, and a multimedia tribute to the Lord of the Rings film trilogy. This performance will take place at Belmont's Curb Event Center on Saturday night at the conclusion of the conference.

Other key events, beyond each day's scholarly panels and presentations, include Thursday night's dinner with and keynote address by Doug Gresham (stepson of C.S. Lewis and consultant to the forthcoming film of The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe), Friday night's performance of "An Evening with C.S. Lewis" by British actor and President of Rising Image Productions David Payne, and Saturday afternoon's The Inconsolable Secret concert by literary progressive rock band Glass Hammer. For more details, visit here. More details, including conference registration information, will be available very shortly. Paper abstract submissions are currently being solicited at the website and accepted through May 1, 2005.

Please pass this on if you know of anyone who is interested! Many thanks.
