A Tribute to John Denver

posted on March 16, 2020 by Paislee

The music of the late John Denver is like an old friend, outlasting trends and standing the test of time. Join the Greensboro Symphony Orchestra (GSO) and acclaimed performer Jim Curry for this tribute to the music of one of the most beloved singer/songwriters ever to grace the stage. Back by overwhelming demand after performing in one of GSO’s most popular POPS Concerts (November 2009), this unforgettable concert will take place on Saturday, June 6, 2020, at the Tanger Center in downtown Greensboro.

After being awarded a full Rotary International scholarship to study music and voice and being selected to sing as the voice of John Denver in the CBS television movie “Take Me Home, the John Denver Story,” there was no doubt that Jim Curry would continue to sing the praises and songs of America’s Troubadour – John Denver. As a life-long fan, Curry dedicated himself to continue John Denver’s legacy of songs and his message of love and caring for our planet to future generations.

Jim Curry will perform with GSO using the original orchestrations written for John Denver by Grammy award-winning composer Lee Holdridge. Curry’s uncanny ability to mirror John’s voice and look takes you back to the time when “Rocky Mountain High”, “Sunshine”, “Calypso”, and “Annie’s Song” topped the charts, and his popular music had the heartfelt message of caring for the earth and for each other. Curry has performed Denver’s music in sold-out shows throughout the country and has emerged as today’s top performer of Denver’s vast legacy of multi-platinum hits. Join GSO for a night you won’t soon forget!
