CLEVELAND – Next summer at Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls, experience Harry Potter and the Chamber of SecretsTM in Concert like never before — with The Cleveland Orchestra. This 2020 Blossom Music Festival movie concert will be presented in high-definition on large screens, with its unforgettable score performed live to picture by The Cleveland Orchestra. Just in time for this year’s holiday gift giving, concert tickets go on sale Tuesday, November 19, 2019, through the Severance Hall Ticket Office, online at clevelandorchestra.com, or by calling Cleveland Orchestra Ticket Services at 216-231-1111 or 1-800-686-1141.

On August 29 & 30, 2020, rediscover one of the tales that sparked a cultural phenomenon: Harry Potter and the Chamber of SecretsTM, the second film in the Harry Potter series. Cars fly, trees fight back and a mysterious house-elf comes to warn Harry Potter at the start of his second year at Hogwarts. Adventure and danger await when bloody writing on a wall announces: The Chamber of Secrets has been opened. To save Hogwarts will require all of Harry, Ron and Hermione’s magical abilities and courage.

Earning a Grammy nomination for the score, the incredible music composed by John Williams became an instant classic, conjuring beautiful and soaring motifs continuing the adventures of Harry Potter on his magical journey.

In 2016, CineConcerts and Warner Bros. Consumer Products announced the Harry Potter Film Concert Series, a global concert tour celebrating the Harry Potter films. Since the world premiere of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in Concert in June 2016, more than 2 million fans have enjoyed this magical experience from J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World, which is scheduled to include over 1,000 performances across more than 48 countries worldwide through 2019.

The complete 2020 Blossom Music Festival season will be announced early in 2020. Blossom Music Festival is sponsored by season sponsor The J.M. Smucker Co.

About Blossom Music Center, Summer Home Of The Cleveland Orchestra
Blossom Music Center was created as the summer home of The Cleveland Orchestra more than 50 years ago and opened in July 1968 with performances of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony conducted by George Szell. The 200-acre music park features the award-winning and acoustically-acclaimed Blossom Pavilion, designed by renowned Cleveland architect Peter van Dijk and seating over 5,000 under cover. The adjoining Blossom Lawn accommodates as many as 15,000 audience members outside on an expansive natural-bowl amphitheater of grass surrounded by bucolic woods.

In the half-century since Blossom’s opening, headline makers and yet-to-be-discovered young artists across all genres have created unforgettable musical experiences for more than 20 million visitors. Each summer, Blossom serves 400,000 visitors who attend concerts ranging from rock, country, and pop to classical. Live Nation operates Blossom under a long-term contract with The Cleveland Orchestra, dividing each year between the Orchestra’s Blossom Music Festival performances and a series of presentations from across a wide range of genres.

Located 25 miles south of Cleveland, Blossom is situated in the rolling hills of Cuyahoga Valley National Park, which preserves 33,000 acres of natural parkland along the Cuyahoga River. Blossom Music Center was named to honor the Dudley S. Blossom family, who have been major supporters of The Cleveland Orchestra throughout its history.
