Vocalist Debbie Gravitte, a Broadway favorite and Tony Award winner, joins the Houston Symphony for Bond and Beyond. A program of signature tunes from the James Bond film franchise, Bond and Beyond features Adele's chart topping single from Skyfall, the latest film in the now 50-year-old spy series. Also on the program are classics such as Shirley Bassey’s 1964 ''Goldfinger'' (her opening ''Gooold-fingahhhhhh'' set the performance standard for divas ever since), Bassey's 1971 ''Diamonds Are Forever,'' laded with sexual innuendo, and Garbage's 1999 ''The World is Not Enough.'' While the concert is made up of mostly Bond music, there are also a few tunes from Inspector Clouseau and Dick Tracy films. The Houston Symphony's Principal Pops Conductor Michael Krajewski, now in his 13th season with the orchestra, will be at the podium.
