While fans eagerly await the release of No Time to Die, the 25th James Bond movie, prepare to be shaken and stirred as Berklee’s most outstanding lead vocalists pay tribute to novelist Ian Fleming’s immortal and debonair Secret Intelligence Service agent, 007.

Produced by Maureen McMullan, the concert will feature a full rhythm section, horns, strings, background vocalists, dancers, and special guests, including Grammy-winning songwriter and vocalist Lisa Fischer (Rolling Stones, Luther Vandross, Tina Turner, Sting, Bon Jovi) and Brad Gleim, assistant professor of voice at Berklee College of Music, who has been hailed by the Boston Globe for his "voluminous baritone ... and brilliant delivery."

Through musical arrangements served straight up and with a twist, relive Monty Norman’s signature Bond theme and iconic hits made famous by legends Shirley Bassey, Paul McCartney, Carly Simon, Tina Turner, and Alicia Keys, to name but a few.

And, for one night only, don’t miss your chance to hear the world premiere of the winning song entry from our exclusive James Bond academic competition. Hosted by Berklee Presents, in collaboration with the college’s Songwriting and Film Scoring departments, students received a mission briefing to compose the “next” James Bond theme song. Befitting a spy, expect an evening filled with fun, elegance, and thrills.
