I had the good fortune of literally growing up with Harry Potter. When the first movie came out, I was 11 years old, just like the witches and wizards attending Hogwarts! For many Canadians, Harry Potter was an integral part of being a kid and a teenager. If you want to relive the magic of Harry Potter all over again, then you can't miss this amazing concert coming up in Vancouver this Spring.
For three days this June, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra will be doing a live scoring of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince at the Orpheum Theatre. That means that you can watch the movie on the big screen while the live orchestra performs the music for the film!
The Half-Blood Prince is the sixth Harry Potter film and it's one of the darkest. Live music will add a whole new dimension to the viewing experience, making your skin prickle with excitement. This isn't the first time that the VSO has live-scored a film! They know what they're doing.
This past holiday season, they did Home Alone and they've done Star Wars films and La La Land recently. They've also already done Harry Potter films, too. In fact, they seem to be doing a long, drawn-out marathon of all the harry potter movies since the last one they did was the Order of the Phoenix which immediately precedes the Half-Blood Prince.
You can catch Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in Concert this Spring at the Orpheum Theatre in Vancouver. Here are the showtimes;
