Organisation information

Filius Flitwick


Great Hall, Hogwarts Castle (presumably)


Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

This orchestra was a musical group comprised of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry students. They sometimes play by themselves, for public entertainment, and sometimes accompany the Frog Choir. The orchestra was comprised of saxophonists, violinists, cellists, flutists, drummers, harpists, tubists and harpsichordists. In the 1990s, its conductor was Professor Flitwick.


1993-1994 school yearEdit

On 1 September 1993, the orchestra and the Frog Choir led a presentation of Something Wicked This Way Comes during the Start-of-Term Feast after the Sorting ceremony. The choir members sang while carrying toads (one of which was Trevor, Neville Longbottom's toad[1]) which croaked during the song, and were accompanied by a harpischord, a drum, a harp, and flutes. While Filius Flitwick joined the feast, the choir and the orchestra retreated from the Hall after the song.

The Triwizard TournamentEdit

In the 1994–1995 school year, the Triwizard Tournament was held at the school and the orchestra played just before the third task for public entertainment. These songs included the Hogwarts March, which was recited frequently. The choir also performed at the Yule Ball on Christmas Eve. Flitwick led the orchestra as they played a waltz at the beginning of the dance, but they stopped when the Weird Sisters took over from them.
