The Royal College of Music in London has scheduled a memorial concert for the late John Barry in June. For details, YOU CAN CLICK HERE.
Barry worked on 12 007 films, composing the scores for 11 of them. He also orchestrated The James Bond Theme played in the first film, 1962’s Dr. No. The composer, who won five Oscars for non-Bond work, died in January at age 77.
Guests at the June 20 concert at Royal Albert Hall include Dame Shriley Bassey, who performed three Bond title songs, the most famous of which was Goldfinger; David Arnold, composer of the last five films of the Eon Productions 007 film series; George Martin, producer for the Beatles who also composed the score for Live And Let Die; and actor Michael Caine.
Conducting the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will be Nicholas Dodd, who has performed that duty on the Arnold-scored 007 films. Tickets go on sale on April 8.
