The concert is a part of the ongoing “Harry Potter” Film Concert series, an international program produced by CineConcerts. During the series, symphony-goers can enjoy a film while watching the BSO perform the film’s score in real time.
Previous installments of the Harry Potter Film Concert Series performed by the BSO include “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,” “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban,” “Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix,” and “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.”
