(October 8, 2019, St. Louis, MO) – The Harry Potter Film Concert Series returns to the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra with Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in Concert, the sixth film in the Harry Potter series. Norman Huynh conducts the SLSO in performing Nicholas Hooper's score live from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince while the film plays in high-definition on Powell Hall's big screen. Concerts are 7:00pm, Friday and Saturday, October 25-26, and 2:00pm, Sunday, October 27.

As Lord Voldemort tightens his grip on both the Muggle and Wizarding Worlds, Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing Harry for the battle fast approaching. Even as the showdown looms, romance blossoms for Harry, Ron, Hermione and their classmates. Love is in the air, but danger lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again.
