Singers Showcase: Bond...James Bond: Theme Songs (Virtual Concert)
As the world eagerly awaits the 25th James Bond film, No Time to Die, prepare to be shaken and stirred as Berklee’s most outstanding lead vocalists, instrumentalists, and arrangers pay tribute to novelist Ian Fleming’s immortal and debonair Secret Intelligence Service agent, 007.
Produced by Maureen McMullan, this virtual concert will feature a full rhythm section, horns, strings, background vocalists, dancers, and a special guest. Through musical arrangements served straight up and with a twist, the performers will interpret a stylistically diverse selection of Bond theme songs curated from across the 50 years of the franchise. Relive Monty Norman’s signature Bond theme and iconic hits made famous by legends Tina Turner, Paul McCartney, and Gladys Knight alongside more contemporary cuts by Billie Eilish, Sam Smith, and the late Chris Cornell. And don’t miss your chance to hear a world premiere of the winning song entry from our exclusive James Bond cocurricular competition. Hosted by Berklee Presents, in collaboration with Berklee’s Songwriting and Film Scoring departments, students received a mission briefing to compose the “next” James Bond theme song. Expect an evening filled with fun, elegance, and thrill befitting a spy.
