Harry Potter and the symphony orchestra.

No, it’s not the title of (yet another) JK Rowling title prolonging the Harry Potter series, rather it’s a preview to the latest Melbourne Symphony Orchestra offering.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

 

The MSO will host two concerts on one massive day in November, bringing the magic of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets to life.

Watch the movie and be enthralled as the orchestra brings John Williams’ scores to life for your listening pleasure.

We can’t help but think that this is the type of event Hermione would love to attend.

It’s almost a decade since the last Harry book was published and five years since the final film, but the boy wizard has never really gone away.

This year saw a new stage-play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (sort-of written by JK) and the wizarding web world Pottermore is going strong.

MSO tickets go on sale October 24 but the legends at the MSO are going you a chance to sign up early to secure your place. Sign up here.
