A DAYTON PHILHARMONIC SPECIAL EVENT
JIM CURRY guest artist
PATRICK REYNOLDS conductor
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA
Jim Curry began his music career writing and performing the opening song, “The Time of Your Life” for his senior play. The song was then voted to be the 1975 class song and Jim was awarded a Rotary Scholarship to study music in college. Even at this early stage in his life, Curry’s natural voice resembled that of singer/songwriter John Denver. Embracing the similarities, Jim continued to sing and specialize in the songs of John Denver, sharing John’s positive messages of love, humanity and environmental awareness.
The untimely death of John Denver’s in 1997 was a tragedy that was felt the world over. Such a void in the musical world left John’s ardent fans demanding that his music survive. CBS television responded by producing a made for TV movie: “Take Me Home, the John Denver Story” in which Curry landed an off-camera role singing as the voice of John Denver. This experience inspired Curry to produce full–length John Denver tribute concerts.
John Denver grew rapidly into a mega celebrity when the world was looking for some hope in the late 60’s and his lyrics in songs like, “Take me Home Country Roads” gave America a new lift abroad as well as at home. People all over the world found pride in the natural wonders of the earth and love for John’s message of caring for our planet and each other. Curry delivers these songs in the same spirit, with the same heartfelt care and desire to make a difference. Curry’s heartfelt delivery rolls out into the crowd as multi-platinum hits like “Rocky Mountain High,” “Annie’s Song” and “Calypso” fill the room.
This holiday season, gather together family and friends and join Jim Curry and the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra for unforgettable Rocky Mountain Christmas that will truly fill up your senses!
