Our Big Score Weekend has come to an end, and Oscar weekend just wrapped up with what might be the wildest finish in recent memory. But even though the celebratory atmosphere surrounding Hollywood’s biggest night is starting to die down, we still can’t seem to get some of our favorite themes out of our heads. Maybe it’s because Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them scooped up the statuette for Best Costume Design, but the music of Harry Potter has us in a buzz. So, we found it fitting to share this magical medley from violinist Albert Chang. It’s a sweet concoction of the themes and motifs that fans of the franchise have come to love, arranged for two violins, cello and piano.
