Forget Celestine Warbeck and the Banshees — get the real music of the Harry Potter universe as the Houston Symphony unleashes Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in Concert. “I’ve always had a very clear passion for film music, which really sits in the upper chambers of the greatest music written in our craft,” admits Justin Freer, the event’s producer. “We’ve been gifted so many amazing scores in the last 90-ish years, and certainly John Williams is amongst the very best of [the] many composers who’ve given us their good compositional graces over the decades. Of all the scores he’s composed, I think [this film] is one of his most cherished. What a beautiful theme he wrote for Hedwig, which has become known the world over.” Potterheads will also have a chance to watch the original 2001 classic on the big screen as the score fills Jones Hall.

7:30 p.m. Friday. Also 2 and 7:30 p.m. July 22. 615 Louisiana. For information, call 713-227-4772 or visit houstonsymphony.org. $23 to $139.
