For the first time in Melbourne, audiences will experience the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra performing the scores from one of the most beloved film series in history.
The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra will perform Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets in Concert in November as part of the Harry Potter Film Concert Series. The concert will feature the MSO performing, to picture, every note from both Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Audiences will be able to relive the magic of each film in high-definition on a huge screen while hearing the orchestra perform John Williams’ unforgettable complete scores live.
CineConcerts and Warner Bros. Consumer Products announced the Harry Potter Film Concert Series, a new global concert tour celebrating the Harry Potter films, early last year. The Harry Potter Film Concert that kicked off in June 2016 is another magical experience from J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World and is scheduled to include hundreds of performances across more than 35 countries around the world through 2018.
Justin Freer, President of CineConcerts and Producer/Conductor of the Harry Potter Film Concert Series explains, “The Harry Potter film series is a once-in-a-lifetime cultural phenomenon that continues to delight millions of fans around the world. It is with great pleasure that we introduce for the first time ever an opportunity to experience the award-winning music scores played live by a symphony orchestra, all while the beloved film is simultaneously projected onto the big screen. It will be an unforgettable event.”
Brady Beaubien of CineConcerts and Concert Producer for the Harry Potter Film Concert Series added, “Harry Potter is synonymous with excitement around the world and we hope that by performing this incredible music with the full movie, audiences will enjoy returning to this magical world, and to the many wonderful magical characters that inhabit it.”
