DAYTON, OH (January 25, 2012) – The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra will present a special concert of The Music of John Denver featuring Jim Curry on Saturday, February 11, 2012 at 8 p.m. at the Schuster Center. Patrick Reynolds, Assistant Conductor of the DPO, will conduct.
Like a golden ray of mountain sunshine breaking through the chill February air, Jim Curry will bring Dayton a remarkable tribute to the great American singer/songwriter John Denver. Jim Curry is considered the foremost performer of John Denver’s music in the world today. His concerts are the first and only full-length John Denver tribute in a Las Vegas Casino and a sell-out favorite at the Silverton time after time. Curry has taken his show on the road to Performing Arts Centers and Casinos in the US and Canada and out to sea as one of the most popular shows on the Holland America Cruise Line.
Jim’s latest efforts take his tribute show to a new level by adding symphony orchestrations. When John Denver wanted to add a full orchestra to his live shows and recordings, he teamed up with Grammy Award winning arranger, composer and conductor Lee Holdridge. Lee’s symphony arrangements, along with Denver’s songs, became the trademark sound of many of his hits. Now you can experience that great sound live, on stage at the Schuster Center. The music of John Denver – great songs like Rocky Mountain High, Take Me Home, Country Roads, and Annie’s Song – is like an old friend, outlasting trends and standing the test of time.
