Harry Potter fans will absolutely freak when they see this amazing sensory experience coming to the Providence Performing Arts Center on February 8.

I'll admit, I have only seen the first Harry Potter movie. I also only read the first book. So my Potter knowledge is limited. What I do know is the experience that is coming to the PPAC is one that you can't miss.

You have seen the movies in the theater, and then again in your home, but you haven't seen them with a live orchestra playing along. Get ready for a sensory-filled evening when the PPAC brings Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban in Concert on Saturday, February 8 with world-renowned conductor Shih Hung Young. Shih is a Chinese conductor who also plays the violin, and he is originally from Taiwan.

There is no experience that even comes close to having a live orchestra in front of you, playing all the music to this iconic film.

I was lucky enough to chat with Shih for a few minutes to discuss what makes this experience so exciting:

This a unique experience that's a must even if you are not a Harry Potter fan, because you'll also be supporting the Rhode Island Philharmonic that will be featured for this show. And who knows? Maybe that wizard magic will rub off on you.
