The Harry Potter Film Concert Series returns to the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra with its final installment, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2” in concert. Justin Freer conducts the orchestra in performing Alexandre Desplat’s score live from “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2” while the film plays in high definition on Powell Hall’s big screen.
Concerts are 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Sept. 23 and 24; and 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 25.
Nominated for a Grammy Award and winner of the BMI Film & TV Award and World Soundtrack Award for Best Score, Oscar-winning composer Desplat creates an epic and emotional finale that pays tribute to not only John Williams’ familiar themes, but also Nicholas Hooper’s mournful work in “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.”
