1. Ulster Orchestra to perform James Bond tribute on 20 February

    By Devin Zydel on 2010-02-10

    The Ulster Orchestra will be celebrating the music of James Bond later this month at a special 007-themed concert.

    Legendary composer and conductor Carl Davis will lead the orchestra through the near 50-year history of Bond music, from 1962’s Dr. No through 2008’s Quantum of Solace.

    Carl Davis has a licence to thrill as he leads you through the hit James Bond films from the original Dr. No theme through to Casino Royale via Goldfinger, From Russia with Love and many other Bond classics. The orchestral works and songs are as much a part of the Bond films as the gadgets, girls and guns! It promises to be a full evening of smooth entertainment as Carl Davis and the Ulster Orchestra track the British secret agent through his most memorable moments.

    TV’s Joe Lindsay will act as the event’s presenter, while vocalist Mary Carewe will lend her voice for classic hits such as Goldfinger and Diamonds are Forever.

    The event is being sponsored by local company Metal Technology. Company chairman, Brian McKnight, said: ‘Bond songs hits the right note for film fans and music fans and nobody plays it better than the Ulster Orchestra.’

    This James Bond concert will be taking place at the Belfast Waterfront Hall on Saturday, 20 February at 7:45pm.

    Tickets are priced from £10 to £26. To book tickets or for further information, visit the official website.
