“We are excited to be part of Jacksonville’s newest entertainment venues,” said Robert Massey, president and CEO of the Jacksonville Symphony. “What better way to introduce fans to the Symphony than Daily’s Place and the Harry Potter Film Concert Series.”
CineConcerts and Warner Bros. Consumer Products announced the Harry Potter Film Concert Series, a new global concert tour celebrating the Harry Potter films, early last year. The Harry Potter Film Concert that kicked off in June 2016 is another magical experience from J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World and is scheduled to include hundreds of performances across more than 35 countries around the world through 2018.
Justin Freer, president of CineConcerts and producer/conductor of the Harry Potter Film Concert Series, said the Harry Potter film series is a once-in-a lifetime cultural phenomenon that continues to delight millions of fans around the world.
“It is with great pleasure that we introduce for the first time ever an opportunity to experience the award-winning music scores played live by a symphony orchestra, all while the beloved film is simultaneously projected onto the big screen,” he said. “It will be an unforgettable event.”
