Relive the wonder of your favorite wizard and other beloved adventures in Harry Potter and the Magic of Music. Run through the halls of Hogwarts, ride a Hippogriff across the black lake, and waltz along with cinderella and her prince as the PSO transports you to the Highlands of Scotland and further into a world of magic.

Discovery Concerts bring the whole family together to enjoy the music of the PSO. Concerts are approximately one-hour long and take the audience on a mind-expanding and educational journey with the full orchestra! Doors open at 1 PM for an hour of games, a hands-on Instrument Petting Zoo, and lots more musical fun!

Accessible parking for patrons with disability permits is available on both sides of Myrtle Street and on Congress Street in front of City Hall. Parking spaces are in high demand in Portland.
