Howard Shore – Saturday Night Live co-creator, rock musician, movie composer, and winner of Oscar, Grammy, and Golden Globe Awards for "Lord of the Rings"
Howard Shore will talk with Cantor Ruben about his fascinating career and his approach to composition, as the composer of scores for such movies as "The Departed," "Gangs of New York," "The Aviator," and "Mrs. Doubtfire," to name just a few, and as the the original music director and co-creator for "Saturday Night Live."
He received a series of Oscars, Grammys, and Golden Globes for his work on the trilogy "The Lord of the Rings." Selections from a DVD of "The Lord of the Rings" will be shown to illustrate Mr. Shore's compositional style.
Among his current projects is an opera "The Fly," being written for the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris and the Los Angeles Opera. After attending the Berklee School of Music, Shore toured and recorded with the rock band "Lighthouse" from 1969-1972.
