When sitting down to watch a movie, there is so much more to enjoy than just the pictures on the screen. Forget about the actors for a second and think about all the work that is put into making a movie. You need composers to help add music and score the film.
There are so many amazing scores in movies. Some of the most known musical scores are Jurassic Park, Star Wars, any Disney movie, The Lord of the Rings, Jaws, and Indiana Jones. However, there is one film franchise that has multiple music scores that almost anyone knows, I’m talking about the Harry Potter franchise.
It doesn't matter if you are a muggle, witch, wizard, or mudblood, this summer you will be able to enjoy all your favorite music that you hear in the Harry Potter films.
Portland Symphony Orchestra (PSO) always puts on an amazing summer concert series, and this year, they will be performing the music of Harry Potter for one night only this summer.
That's right, so grab your robes and wands and prepare to battle "he who must not be named," well okay, that's a lie, there will not be a wizard battle happening. But, you can dress up and show off your favorite house.
Interested in attending? Well then, you'll need some more information.
You'll be able to take a magical journey from Platform 9 3/4 to the hallowed halls of Hogwarts on Saturday, July 8th. The music will start at 7 pm, so make sure that you leave early and don't miss the Hogwarts Express.
The Portland Symphony Orchestra will be performing at the Seaside Pavillion at Old Orchard Beach.
Morihoko Nakahara is the guest conductor, and he was also the guest conductor last year for PSO's "The Music of Star Wars." Let me just say, he was an amazing conductor and even put on a great performance, yes, performance.
