QC Potterheads Are Going Hog(warts) Wild For This
Harry Potter fans are going to love this. The Quad-City Symphony Orchestra’s holiday concert on Saturday, will transport you to Hogwarts; at least in your mind.
According to a QC Times article, the entirety of the movie “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” will be screened with audible dialogue and the music removed. The Quad-City Symphony Orchestra (QCSO), will perform the score live.
This marks a first-of-its kind event for QCSO.
Past holiday pops concerts have featured a variety of guest artists, including members of Cirque de la Symphonie which created holiday-themed routines to accompany the music.
For the 26th annual holiday concert, the orchestra is doing something different.
Two performances are scheduled — at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturday — at the Adler Theatre in downtown Davenport with both performances nearly sold out.
Across the street from the Adler, the wine bar Cru is planning a Harry Potter-themed pop-up bar coinciding with the concert. The special menu features cocktails such as butter beer, polyjuice potion and unicorn blood.
On Facebook, about 1,400 people have marked interest in attending the pop-up bar. If you want to get your Harry Potter on, this is the place to be this weekend.
