Filius Flitwick


Great Hall, Hogwarts Castle


Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

The Frog Choir was a singing group of Hogwarts students conducted by Professor Filius Flitwick. They usually practised in the Great Hall. The choir is quite talented, being able to both sing fluently in Latin as well as polyphonically.


1993-1994 school yearEdit

On 1 September 1993, the choir led a presentation of Something Wicked This Way Comes during the Welcoming 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 harpsichord, a drum, a harp, and flutes. While Filius Flitwick joined the feast, the choir retreated from the Hall after the song.

1995-1996 school yearEdit

In 1995, Dolores Umbridge was put in charge of observing teachers and their lessons and inspected one of Flitwick's choir practices in the Great Hall. She seemed pleased and, perhaps, impressed, before embarassing Flitwick with a measuring tape.

1996-1997 school yearEdit

In early October 1996, the choir had an emergency practice that forced Flitwick to retreat from Hogsmeade Village back to Hogwarts Castle. In the end of the school year, Professor Flitwick had a rehearsal with the choir in the Great Hall late in the evening. As they sang the English and Latin song, In Noctem, clouds rolled in around the school and the Battle of the Astronomy Tower was soon to begin. Midway through the session, Minerva McGonagall interrupted and told Flitwick to wake the Potions master, Severus Snape.
