KC STAR Classical Beat: "Bond and Beyond"

Excerpt from KC STAR'S CLASSICAL BEAT from APRIL 8

“Bond and Beyond”

James Bond without his memorable theme is as unimaginable as Bond without a shaken-not-stirred martini. But there’s more music to the Bond films than just that iconic motif, as the Kansas City Symphony will demonstrate when it presents “Bond and Beyond: 50 Years of 007” on April 13, 14 and 15 at Helzberg Hall.

Guest conductor Michael Krajewski and vocalist Debbie Gravitte will perform music from Bond classics like “Casino Royale,” “Goldfinger,” “From Russia With Love” and “Diamonds Are Forever.”

There also will be a tribute to other cinema adventures with music from “The Pink Panther,” “Dick Tracy” and “Austin Powers.” Groovy, baby.

7 p.m. April 13 and 8 p.m. April 14 and 15. Helzberg Hall, Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. $45-$90. 816-471-0400 or KCSymphony.org.
