HARRY Potter fans will be able to relive the magic of Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone in high-definition on a big screen while hearing a full live orchestra perform John Williams’ score later this month.

The Czech National Symphony Orchestra will perform a live musical accompaniment to the 2001 blockbuster which is the first instalment in one of the most beloved film series in history. The event on Saturday, September 21 at the BIC is part of the Harry Potter Film Concert Series.

In Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Harry Potter learns on his 11th birthday that he is the orphaned son of two wizards and possesses magical powers of his own. At Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, he learns the high-flying sport of Quidditch and plays a thrilling ‘live’ chess game en route to facing a Dark Wizard.

Justin Freer, president of CineConcerts and producer/conductor of the Harry Potter Film Concert Series, said: “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 bring fans 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. This is truly an unforgettable event.”

Brady Beaubien, concert producer 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 the Wizarding World.”
