Tulsa Community College’s Signature Symphony begins its 2015-16 Pops series with a special performance that’s likely to shake up the audience. Featuring jazz vocalist Jaimee Paul, Music of James Bond will take audiences on a modern journey through the music of 007. Signature Symphony’s newest artistic director and conductor, Maestro Andres Franco begins his inaugural season with the first of five Pops concerts. “Our Pop series opens with the music of James Bond, which has captured the audience’s imagination for several generations,” says Franco. “With theme songs by singers such as Adele, Tina Turner, Duran Duran, Paul McCartney, Shirley Bassey and Nancy Sinatra, I am sure you will hear music by some of your favorite artists.” For two nights, the thematic performance will fill TCC’s VanTrease Performing Arts Center. Tickets start at $30, or you can purchase a Pops season pass for $128. And for some fun, life-size 007 characters will hang out in the lobby area for photo opportunities.
