On Nov. 11, E.J. Thomas Hall will be hosting The Akron Symphony who will be performing award-winning composer and Oscar winner, John Williams’ score from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. This performance will have two different showtimes, one at 1:00 p.m. and the other at 7:30 p.m.

Warner Bros. and CineConcerts announced the global Harry Potter Film Concert Series in early 2017 and the series celebrates the wizarding world that J.K. Rowling has created. With this unique concert experience, audiences can relive the magic of “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” which will play in HD on a large screen while the Akron Symphony Orchestra performs the score simultaneously.

From the Harry Potter in Concert website, “Harry Potter is synonymous with excitement around the entire world and we hope that by performing this incredible music with the full movie, audiences will enjoy returning to this world, and to the many wonderful characters that inhabit it,” Brady Beaubien of CineConcerts and Concert Producer for The Harry Potter Film Concert Series said.

There are still some tickets left for the two highly anticipated shows on as well as at the E.J. Thomas box office from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on weekdays or by phone at 330-972-7570. Ticket prices range from $30 to $70 for the 1:00 p.m. performance and $75 to $125 for the 7:30 performance.

    My wife and I went to this performance to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
    It was an extraordinary experience.
    The Akron Symphony was spot on in their performance. At times, lost in the story of the orphaned Boy Who Lived, I would be struck with the fidelity of the sound system. Which was a live orchestra!! A seamless, flawless performance by the Akron Symphony that at times surpassed the original score. Fun, exciting, and well done.
