“Journey through Space, Time, and Fantasy”
English composer and conductor of film music, John Barry, will be featured at Pops On The Quad. USO will preform Somewhere in Time.
He composed the scores for 11 of the James Bond films between 1963 and 1987. He received many awards for his work, including five Academy Awards; two for Born Free, and one each for The Lion in Winter, Dances with Wolves and Out of Africa (both of which also won him Grammy Awards).
After the success of Dr. No, Barry was hired to compose and perform eleven of the next fourteen James Bond films. In his tenure with the film series, Barry’s music, variously brassy and moody, achieved very wide appeal.
