Excitement is growing as the Orlando Philharmonic prepares to pay tribute to America’s beloved musical icon, John Denver in a Rocky Mountain High at The Springs.
The music of the late John Denver is like an old friend, outlasting trends and standing the test of time. Denver’s uplifting music and lyrics continue their appeal to all ages.
Join the Orlando Philharmonic and acclaimed performer Jim Curry for this tribute to the music of one of the most beloved singer/songwriters ever to grace the stage.
“The physical resemblance is amazing, the voice is unbelievable. If John Denver were alive today,
he’d want to hear songs performed by Jim Curry.” — Christina Chanes Nystrom, City News
Tribute artist Jim Curry, whose voice was heard in the CBS-TV movie Take Me Home: The John Denver Story, 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.
Even at this early stage in his life Jim’s natural voice resembled that of singer/songwriter John Denver. Embracing this similarity, he 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 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 Jim landed an off-camera role singing as the voice of John Denver. This experience inspired Jim to produce full–length John Denver tribute concerts.
