With the new year comes a fresh calendar – and if you’re anything like us, you’ll be keen to find out what upcoming cultural events you can fill it with! Last year we put you in-the-know about several show-stopping concerts from the Willoughby Symphony Orchestra, and we don’t plan to stop in 2024. Up first on February 3 & 4, there’s something extra special in-store as Willoughby Symphony Orchestra brings you an evening with a world-famous secret agent at The Concourse Concert Hall – and his name is Bond, James Bond.
Forget shaken or stirred, James Bond fanatics, music lovers and movie buffs alike will be utterly moved by this captivating performance. In collaboration with renowned British concert and recording artist Mary Carewe, Willoughby Symphony Orchestra will regale guests with renditions of tracks from the iconic soundtracks. And no matter whether you’re only familiar with more recent Bond movies, or you know the filmography inside out, this thrilling night of spycraft and suspense will celebrate films from the 1960s through to present day.
Having previously recorded these tracks with London’s Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Mary Carewe has fine tuned her vocals to perfectly emanate those of the original artist. So whether you and your family are fans of Adele, Billie Eilish, Tina Turner or Shirley Bassey, you can expect to feel as though you are sitting in the room with them as you listen to ‘Golden Eye’, ‘Skyfall’ and more.
Guests are encouraged to look the part for this fabulous affair, think classic James Bond cocktail attire. And if you do decide to don your suavest attire for the occasion, why not make an evening of it? With plenty of great food spots in Chatswood, you could go for a pre or post show bite to eat and a drink… like a martini perhaps.
Willoughby Symphony Orchestra: An Evening with James Bond will show on February 3 at 7pm and February 4 at 2pm.
