As thousands of fans across the UK begin their journey with The Harry Potter Film Concert Series by attending one of the sold out performances of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone™ in Concert, CineConcerts, Senbla, and Warner Bros. Consumer Products announce that the second in the series – Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets™ in Concert will have its live UK concert tour premiere in December.
The second magical tale from J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World will be brought to life around the UK this December as it calls at Liverpool before travelling onto Leeds, Cardiff, Dublin, Manchester, and Glasgow before finishing in Birmingham.
The film, which follows Harry Potter’s second year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, was released in 2002, and became one of the highest-grossing films of all time.
The tour will feature a live symphony orchestra performing, to picture, every note from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets™. Audiences will be able to relive the magic of the film in high-definition on a 60-foot screen while hearing the orchestra perform the unforgettable score by award-winning film composer and Oscar winner, John Williams.
Justin Freer, President of CineConcerts and Producer/Conductor of The Harry Potter Film Concert Series said: “It is incredibly exciting to think that audiences will be able to relive the magic of the second film while listening to the award-winning music score played live by a symphony orchestra. It will be another unique and unforgettable event.”
On touring the follow-up, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets™ in Concert, and also the success of premiering Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone™ in Concert, Senbla CEO Ollie Rosenblatt said: “Since we first debuted the Harry Potter Concert Series, the response from both film and music fans has been phenomenal. The shows really are unforgettable and remind us why Harry Potter has meant so much to so many people. To see these seminal films with a huge orchestra is beyond enthralling. We are delighted to bring Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets in Concert to audiences around the UK and to continue this magical and immersive experience”
