<http://petrisamueltikka.tripod.com/> It has several relatively short audio files (Alcar, Firiel's Song, and Namarie are Quenya) and links to several other sites with audio files.
If you're looking for something to _really_ take up time, there's a 9 minute 15 second Quenya reading here <http://www.lambion-ardava.net/Katharina/Elessar.mp3> (the Quenya text she is reading is on this page <http://www.alissonrveldhuis.com/JRRT_languages.html>. It's a translation of part of Tolkien's "Unfinished Tales").
Also, if you check the [relatively recent] archives of the elfling list, there were lots of posts about audio files and comments on them.
There are also lots of songs in Quenya and Sindarin on the internet (though on some of them, the pronounciation is pretty far off). I'll post some titles and links in another message.

Hope this is helpful.
Good luck with your presentation.
