When Ian Fleming developed the character of James Bond in his 1953 novel, “Casino Royale,” it must have been impossible for him to fathom that he'd created one of the 20th century's most enduring fictional characters. Establishing his greatest popularity in film, Bond became synonymous with fast cars, lethal gadgets, gorgeous female conquests and pithy turns of phrase. Of course with every movie installment came a memorable theme song, among the all-time best including Chris Cornell's “You Know My Name,” Shirley Bassey's “Goldfinger” and Paul McCartney's “Live and Let Die.” Honoring these classic compositions of “Dr. No,” “The Spy Who Loved Me” and many other Bond films, the Richmond Symphony presents “The Music of James Bond” at Richmond CenterStage on Saturday, March 12, at 8 p.m. $17-$75. 788-1212. — Mike Hilleary
