Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Live in Concert #giveaway
I have been a Harry Potter fan since reading the first page of the first book. When each book would get into my hands, I would reread the previous books before starting the new one. Zoe and Ana have both read all of the books now. When they would finish the last page of the books… we would watch a movie. (For the record, they both think the movies are great, but the books are better.) So, I saw the movies in the theater when they were released, I watched the as I bought the DVDs, I watched them with Zoe, and I watched them with Ana. And fine, I’ve watched them a few other times. I’ve also been to Harry Potter at Universal in Orlando, and the 3 of us were to Harry Potter in California. I’m dying to do a Harry Potter tour in England. But the books… the books are my favorite. They’re magic.
The one thing the movies did give me that we didn’t get with the books? The music. I hear the first few notes of the theme song and I get all the feels. Butterflies, goosebumps, chills, giddiness, excitement… those first few notes are all it takes. I hear those notes and I’m pulled right into another world. It doesn’t matter how old I get… those notes are magical.
I recently received an email asking if I would be interested in sharing information about, and featuring a giveaway for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Live in Concert at NJPAC (Prudential Hall) on October 27th at 2pm. I absolutely love the concept of the movie playing while the orchestra performs live. Not everyone (especially children) can sit through a full orchestra concert. But experiencing a full live orchestra performance while viewing a Harry Potter movie? Brilliant. I can only imagine the chills of the movie opening to the sounds of the music coming from the live orchestra.
NJPAC hosts the full-length film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, projected in high-definition on a giant screen, with Oscar-nominated composer Patrick Doyle’s masterful score performed live by the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra. For more information visit NJPAC online.
If you are a Harry Potter fan… or an orchestra fan… I have 2 tickets to give away to my readers. Simply log into the rafflecopter below, comment on this post and visit us on Facebook and Twitter.
Mark your calendars now for the next installment of Harry Potter in Concert! You can see Order of the Phoenix Live in Concert of June 1, 2019. Tickets on sale now.
