Harry Potter took the world by storm - first in the books, then in the movies, now in the music.  Kids only need to hear a few notes of John Williams’ iconic score to conjure up images of Hedwig’s flight and Diagon Alley. The magic of Harry Potter will be brought to life in readings and music with two wonderful young actors and the OSO.  Come in costume and let us whisk you away to Harry’s Wondrous World.
