Utah Symphony to Perform the Music of HARRY POTTER, 2/18-19
Magic and wonder await as Deputy Headmaster Vladimir Kulenovic conducts the Utah Symphony through the music and fantasy of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry on February 18 and 19 at Abravanel Hall. Songs from the "Harry Potter" movie soundtracks composed by John Williams are scattered throughout the concert including the musical flights of "Nimbus 2000" and "Hedwig's Theme" and the mystical spells of "The Sorcerer's Stone" and "Witches, Wands and Wizards".
American composer John Williams is widely considered to be one of the greatest film composers of all time. His career spans more than six decades, and he has written cinematic scores for some of the most memorable silver screen movies in history, including "Jaws", the "Star Wars" series, "Superman," "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial" and the "Indiana Jones" series.
The remainder of the Utah Symphony program will showcase classical music favorites with a magical twist, including Paul Dukas' The Sorcerer's Apprentice, music from Sergei Prokofiev's "Cinderella," and Igor Stravinsky's "King Kastchei's Danse Infernal" from The Firebird Suite.
The performance represents the 3rd concert in the Utah Symphony Family Series. The first show scheduled for Tuesday on Feb. 18 at 7 PM is almost completely sold out. Due to high demand, a second performance has been added on Wednesday, Feb.19 at 7 PM.
