Troy Quinn and the Owensboro Symphony plan to shake things up Feb. 1 when 13 original orchestral arrangements from the James Bond movie series fill the RiverPark Center Cannon Hall.
From Oscar-winning composers John Barry to Marvin Hamlisch, the symphony will play the original arrangements from different decades of Bond movies, including “Goldfinger,” “Skyfall” and “For Your Eyes Only.”
“It really is a special concert — we are taking popular pieces like ‘Skyfall’ and ‘Live and Let Die’ and performing them without a vocalist,” Music Director and Conductor Quinn said. “It is essentially a greatest hits playlist from the films.”
Video montages from the Bond films will go along with the pieces, and there will be a surprise beginning for the evening.
Quinn said the musicians are responding to these arrangements and enjoy the challenges of the orchestral pieces.
“Some of the pieces require some heavy lifting,” Quinn said. “We have a big brass section for this concert. It’s going to be a night of great music.”
Concert attendees are encouraged to join Quinn in Cannon Hall from 6:15 to 6:40 p.m. for a special pre-concert conversation about the performance, which is designed to enhance the concert experience and provide insights into the music and music-makers performing on the program.
“Behind the Music with Troy Quinn” is free with a concert ticket, with open seating at the orchestra level of the concert hall.
Tickets for the Owensboro Symphony’s concert range from $46.50 to $55.50. Student tickets are $15 each. Tickets can be purchased by calling 270-687-2770 or through the RiverPark Center Box Office, located at 101 Daviess St.
