Spend a few quidditch, put concealer over your Hogwarts and fill your muggles with Champagne: Harry Potter is coming to London. If you thought that classical music was all boring sonatas and tinny operettas, then think again, it’s also some of the most famous film scores about- Star Wars (dum, dum, de, dum, dum, de, dum…) and, even more importantly, Harry Potter (de, dee, didi dee, de, dee, dah…) and all that’s coming to town in September.
Milking the wizarding franchise for all it’s magical worth (check out 10 more ways you can do this, by the way), the plan is to bring the acclaimed Harry Potter™ Film Concert Series to London as part of its whopping 48 country (more than quarter of the globe) tour. The concept is simple, sit back and watch your favourite Potter film, but accompanied by a life orchestra. And not any old orchestra, the Czech National Symphony Orchestra and Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra will both be having a pop at it.
You can catch this piece of all this twice this autumn, firstly when Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone shows at Southbank’s Royal Festival Hall, on September 17th and 18th and again in November with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire In Concert to the Royal Albert Hall.
