Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center - Phoenix Room (D162/164)
The music and orchestrations of the Wizarding World films have become an iconic part of the Harry Potter fandom. John Williams, Patrick Doyle, Nicholas Hooper, Alexandre Desplat, and James Newton Howard all created truly memorable scores that evoke strong emotions in Jo Rowling's stories. However, every fan has their opinions about which film had the best score, who was the best composer, and whether "Hedwig's Theme" should have been used in Fantastic Beasts. Join us in a celebration and discussion of the scores, their composers, and their impacts on the films and fandom.
