Utah Symphony will finish out its family series with “The Magic of Harry Potter” on Feb. 18 and 19 at 7 p.m. at Abravanel Hall.

Vladimir Kulenovic, the symphony’s associate conductor, will lead in songs from the “Harry Potter” soundtrack as well as other favorites, such as Paul Dukas’ “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” Richard Wagner’s overture to “The Flying Dutchman” and selections from Sergei Prokofiev’s Cinderella Suite No. 1.

The symphony presents its family series as a way to educate youths about the world of music.

“We are making music and knowledge and pleasure accessible and creating the next generation of listeners, players and music lovers,” Thierry Fischer, Utah Symphony music director, said about the program in a previous Deseret News article.

Tickets for the performance start at $18 and can be purchased by phone at 801-355-2787, in person at the Abravanel Hall ticket office, located at 123 W. South Temple, or online at utahsymphony.org.
