VIDEO: Flash Mob from Harry Potter Orchestra Manages Mischief
November 16, 2016
Berklee's Harry Potter Soundtrack Orchestra delivered a flash mob performance in anticipation of "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them."
"Lumos maxima!" is not what anyone expected to hear when they went to lunch in the Berklee Dining Hall on Thursday, November 3. But Gabriela Sofia Gomez-Estevez called those words out as she took to the college's Jackson Browne Stage to conduct the Harry Potter Soundtrack Orchestra (HPSO) in a surprise performance. Planned with Warner Brothers Studios to precede the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which hits theaters this Friday, November 18, the brief show drew cheers from the crowd and had many students filming as they listened to the HPSO's arrangement of "Hedwig's Theme."
