Develop the Gift: Potter’s Fugue

After years of waiting, Harry Potter fans can finally travel to J.K. Rowling’s literary universe through Universal Studio’s “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.” For some of us, however, it might take a couple more years to raise the funds to be able to travel on the Hogwarts Express.

But instead of twiddling our thumbs to pass the time away, take a cue from YouTuber Alexander Wolheim. Mr. Wolheim, during a bout of boredom, created a fugue out of the Harry Potter theme. Hear organist Ben Horden play it with wizarding excellence and travel to your own aural Hogwarts.
