On Aug. 30, Principal Pops Conductor Michael Krajewski directs the Houston Symphony in a “top secret” event titled James Bond: License to Thrill at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. The evening is filled with music from classic Bond films such as “Goldfinger,” “You Only Live Twice” and “Diamonds are Forever.” Other music includes theme songs from “Batman,” “Spider-Man,” “Superman” and “Inspector Clouseau.” The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. and features FREE lawn seating. Gates open at 6:30 p.m.
James Bond: License to Thrill is the first of three performances presented by KRIV FOX26 and KTXH My20 this fall at The Pavilion. The networks are also sponsoring Houston Ballet’s “Carnival of Dance” Oct. 5 and the 13th Annual Children’s Festival Nov. 10 and 11.
Krajewski is a favorite of audiences at The Pavilion and across the country. The much-sought- after pops conductor is known for his imaginative and entertaining programs. With his enthusiasm and delightful sense of humor, the evening promises to be full of laughter, suspense and plenty of great music.
