What do you get when you add the music from two of the biggest book and movie epic series together in one night of musical madness? Pure magic! The Mid-Columbia Mastersingers (including the Boys' Choir) and Mid-Columbia Symphony have teamed up to bring the incredible music of Star Wars and Lord of the Rings (LOTR) together one amazing event! The event is called the 'Circle of Fifths' and includes music from Star Wars, LOTR, and Wagner (you'll probably recognize this famous song. Bet you didn't realize it had words! ;) ).

This is a huge production featuring 125 total singers onstage with a 70 piece symphony orchestra! Artistic Director for the Mastersingers, Justin Raffa is very enthusiastic about the event. "The opportunity to hear live music performed from the Star Wars and Lord of the Rings motion pictures is a rare occurrence in our community," says Raffa. "Because of the familiarity of the music, this is a great first concert for people to be introduced to the power of live classical symphonic music. Nothing about this concert will be stuffy, boring, or too complicated to enjoy."
