Culture notes: James Bond replaces Hamlisch at ASO; Jewish Film fest opens tonight

MUSIC
ASO replaces Hamlisch

With composer-conductor Marvin Hamlisch ill and unable to travel, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra has switched its 8 p.m. March 16-17 pops series concerts to “Bond and Beyond.” Principal pops conductor Michael Krajewski will lead the ASO, featuring guest vocalist Debbie Gravitte, in a program of James Bond themes (including “From Russia with Love” and “Goldfinger”) and songs from other spy films. Hamlisch walked off stage mid-performance during a Pittsburgh Symphony pops concert on Jan. 29 complaining of dizziness and was briefly hospitalized. 404-733-5000, www.atlantasymphony.org.

–Number of screenings sold out in advance for the 12th Atlanta Jewish Film Festival, which opens at 7:30 tonight at the Fox Theatre with “My Best Enemy,” a World War II-set dramedy about Viennese art dealers, Nazis, impersonation and double-crossing. Tickets are still available for tonight’s festival debut, but the remaining 117 screenings over the next three weeks are in smaller-capacity multiplexes, so advance ticket purchase is encouraged.
