Do your best not to cry until the end of this blog post. On March 31 and April 1, The New Jersey Symphony Orchestra will perform the score of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone at Radio City Music Hall while the movie plays on the big screen.
What's more, this epic screening will only be part one of eight in the Harry Potter Film Concert Series. That's right: no matter what horrific fate awaits us if the election takes a wrong turn, we can at least look forward to live concert screenings of every Harry Potter movie in the next few years.
The international film concert series, which launched in June, finally comes to NYC on March 31 and April 1st, 2017. Tickets range from $49–$175, but who can really put a price on the magic of childhood nostalgia? The tour already features screenings of the first three blockbuster movies—all scored by John Williams—in three different continents, so it stands to reason that New Yorkers will get to see Sirius Black show up like a boss in the next few years. We're excited to hear the scores of the final five films as well, as scored by Patrick Doyle, Nicholas Hooper and Alexandre Desplat. Snag your tickets now before you start blasting these soundtracks on Spotify.
