Characters from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

CSO’s homage to film composer John Williams is a strategy to teach the little ones about the different sections of the orchestra through “The Boy Who Lived.” The idea is to rope the youngsters into classical music appreciation though Hufflepuffs, Hagrid and Quidditch. A contemporary refinement of Benjamin Brittan’s 1945 classic The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra, the original “classical for kids” composition, designed to teach children the tone colors and capacities of the various sections of the orchestra. William’s chock-full-of-leitmotifs score should do the trick.
