The Magic of John Williams (From Fandom to Not-so-Stardom)

ABS-CBN's Philharmonic Orchestra did a repeat of The Magic of John Williams last February 23, 2013 at the Meralco Theater.

Unlike the first run of this show last September 2012, they will now play the songs of John Williams for the movie Harry Potter together with his other famous songs from Superman, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, E.T. Jaws, and more.

Because of their inclusion of Harry Potter theme songs composed by John Williams, I was able to cosplay a Hogwarts' student with other members of Hogwarts Philippines (Pinoy Harry Potter). And because of this event, I can now say that I'm a real Hogwarts Philippines member, not to mention that I am a Ravenclaw for this event contrary to being a Slytherin Prefect to this group of local witches and wizards.

I won't actually be writing about the event itself since you can read them around the web, see ABS-CBN News Lifestyle, instead, I'll be writing things behind the scene.

It was a fun experience. Production people even Karylle are calling us kids even though we are old enough to be Aurors in the Wizarding World. Foods were prepared for "cost players". People will ask to have a photo with the group and choose their wand, instead the usual "the wand chooses its owner" thing of Mr. Ollivander.

My favorite part in this experience is when the cosplayers were already preparing to go home after the show. Because of the Star Wars people were all dressed up very well, even the Hogwarts kids were not able to resist to have a photo with them. For more photos, you may visit my album in Facebook for this event.
