The Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone ™ concert is the first part of the Harry Potter Film Concert Series, a new global concert tour celebrating the Harry Potter films, stopping in Budapest at Papp László Budapest Sport Arena on January 21.
The Harry Potter Film Concert that kicked off in June 2016 is another magical experience from J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World, where the audience is invited to relive the magic of the film in high-definition on a 40-foot screen while hearing the orchestra perform John Williams’ unforgettable score.
Justin Freer, President of CineConcerts and Producer/Conductor of the Harry Potter Film Concert Series explains, “The Harry Potter film series is one of those once-in-a-lifetime cultural phenomena 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 musical scores played live by a symphony orchestra, 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 adds, “Harry Potter is synonymous with excitement around the entire world and we hope that by performing this incredible music with the full movie, audiences will enjoy returning to this world, and to the many wonderful characters and adventures that inhabit it.” In Budapest the concert will feature the Magyar Virtuózok Orchestra performing.
