Indianapolis Symphony Plays Along With Harry Potter Again:

Harry Potter is one of the most successful movie franchises in history. Along with the great characters and entertaining stories, the score by the legendary John Williams serves to heighten the film series’ magical atmosphere.

Once again, fans of the movies got to hear that music live as they watched the fourth film, “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” courtesy of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. The group has done these performances before with the first three movies (“The Sorcerer’s Stone,” “The Chamber of Secrets,” and “The Prisoner of Azkaban.”) Given the success of those performances, the orchestra decided to do the fourth movie, too, at Hilbert Circle Theatre. Officials with the ISO said this is a great way to bridge the gap between young movie fans and adults who love classical music. Certainly many of those adult fans have likely grown up listening the cinematic scores of John Williams, who has done music for movies like “Star Wars,” “Jaws,” “Superman,” and “Jurassic Park.” Your text to link…

The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra is not finished with Harry Potter in 2018. They will also play during showings of the fifth and sixth films in the series, “The Order of the Phoenix” and “The Half-Blood Prince.” Also this year, the orchestra plans performances showcasing the songs of U2, and music from the movies “Jurassic Park” and “Star Wars: A New Hope.”
