by BWW News Desk - Jul 29, 2016

For the second to last concert of Pacific Symphony's Summer Festival 2016 at Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre—the audience is sure to hear these words ringing in their ears: The name is Bond…James Bond. Dashing and debonair, Bond's movie themes are instantly recognizable, evoking international intrigue, glamour and suspense. Making this concert especially memorable are vocalist Scott Coulter and two-time Grammy Award-winner Sheena Easton, featured singer on the James Bond soundtrack, “For Your Eyes Only.” With more than 20 million records worldwide, Easton joins the Symphony to seduce the audience into the world of “Goldfinger,” “The Spy Who Loved Me,” “A View to a Kill,” “Skyfall” and more. The concert also includes “Diamonds are Forever,” “For Your Eyes Only” and “spy” songs from “Mission Impossible,” “Austin Powers,” “Dick Tracy,” “Pink Panther” and “Charlie's Angels.” And that's just a sampling!

by Don Grigware - May 23, 2016

On Thursday May 19 consummate singer Pat Whiteman presented An Evening of Pat Whiteman & Grammy nominated songwriter Harriet Schock at the E Spot Lounge at Vitello's in Studio City to a sold-out house of arduous music lovers. Although not as well known as the others, Harriet Schock has been compared to Joni Mitchell and Carly Simon. Her pop songs are that good, for example 'Ain't No Way to Treat a Lady' which gave Helen Reddy a great big hit back in the 70s. Who better to interpret her incisive emotional messages than virtuoso Pat Whiteman? The evening was a divine songfest of original material with a 6-piece band, including Schock at the piano and electronic keyboard, and two backup singers. There were also special guests: Gary Lynn Floyd, who has an uber expressive singing style perfect for Schock's music...and movie composer Misha Segal who co-wrote the gorgeous 'First Time on a Ferris Wheel' with Schock.
