harry potter concert

A huge Harry Potter concert is coming to Toronto

Is there anything more epic than the opening of John Williams' "Hedwig's Theme" (otherwise known as the Harry Potter music)? Probably. But to a Potterhead, it's downright magical.

Now you can celebrate your love for all things Potter at the Sony Centre thanks to two shows that pair the Toronto Symphony Orchestra with the Harry Potter movies.

First up, of course, is Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. This screening is on June 27 and the pre-sale is happening right now.

On October 12, 2017, the series continues with Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. For the second time, the TSO, conducted by Justin Freer, will play John Williams' score alongside the film.

But you better start rubbing your galleons together because these shows aren't cheap. Pre-sale tickets for the June 27 show look like they start at $49.

The TSO is no stranger to accompanying epic movies. Over Halloween, for instance, they wowed audiences with the music of Danny Elfman - he scored many of Tim Burton's films. Later this year, the TSO will bring Howard Shore's score to life at the sold-out The Lord of the Rings - The Fellowship of the Ring in concert.
