From the first strains of 'Hedwig's Theme' (RIP? Too soon in the piece?), relive your favourite parts of all eight Harry Potter films at an afternoon concert with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra.

John Williams, Patrick Doyle, Nicholas Hopper and Alexandre Desplat masterminded the scores of this iconic set of films, and the magic is still palpable in these beautiful pieces of music. Close your eyes and go on a musical journey — through Diagon Alley, on the Hogwarts Express, into the Chamber of Secrets, the Forbidden Forest, to a banquet in the Great Hall; reliving the iconic scenes of the Harry Potter universe.

Iconic movie score pieces like 'Buckbeak's Flight' and 'Hedwig's Theme' will swoop you right back into the films and make you want to immediately reread the entire box set that's been in the bookcase in your parent's lounge since you finished them when you were 12.

Ably conducted by Christopher Dragon, this afternoon of nostalgic wizarding score is also the perfect way to take in the splendour of a New Zealand Symphony Orchestra concert while also being kind on your butterbeer budget.
