(June 26, 2017 – Louisville, KY)… The Harry Potter Film Concert Series returns to the Kentucky Center with Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, the second film in the Harry Potter series. On Friday, November 17 and Saturday, November 18, the Louisville Orchestra will perform John Williams’ unforgettable score from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, while the film plays in high-definition on a 40-foot screen.
The Harry Potter Film Concert Series, which is another magical experience from J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World, kicked off in June 2016 with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and is scheduled to include hundreds of performances across more than 35 countries around the world through 2018.
In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, cars fly, trees fight back and a mysterious house-elf pays Harry a visit to warn him of what lies ahead this year in the world of wizardry. This year at Hogwarts, spiders talk, letters scold and Harry’s own unsettling ability to causes his friends to doubt him. It’s a year of adventure and danger when bloody writing on a wall announces: “The Chamber of Secrets has been opened.”
Earning a Grammy nomination for the score, the incredible music composed by John Williams became an instant classic, conjuring beautiful and soaring motifs continuing the adventures of Harry Potter on his magical adventures.
Brady Beaubien of CineConcerts and Concert Producer for the Harry Potter Film Concert Series added, “Harry Potter is synonymous with excitement around the world and we hope that by performing this incredible music with the full movie, audiences will enjoy returning to this magical world, and to the many wonderful characters that inhabit it.”
Tickets go on sale Saturday, July 8 at 10am via KentuckyCenter.org for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Ticket Office: 502.584.7777.
