Composer and Conductor Lee Holdridge Joins Greensboro Symphony Pops to Celebrate John Denver
Lee Holdridge will celebrate what would have been John Denver’s 70th birthday with the return of tribute artist Jim Curry. Jim has performed Denver’s songs in sold out shows all across the country, and he’s quickly become today’s top interpreter of Denver’s enormous legacy of multi-platinum hits. In addition to his long list of concert works performed and recorded by major orchestras and opera orchestras, award-winning T.V., and film hits, Lee Holdridge has worked with a veritable Who’s Who list of major recording artists including Barabara Streisand, Neil Diamond, Stevie Wonder, and John Denver.
Composer, conductor Lee Holdridge spoke with David Ford by phone from his home in Los Angeles. Tuesday, December 31st, beginning at 8:00pm in Westover Church, Lee will conduct the Greensboro Symphony Pops and singer Jim Curry in an all John Denver program. Lee arranged many of John Denver’s biggest hits for singer and orchestra—they’ll be featured tonight in celebration of what would have been John Denver’s 70th birthday. It’s being called the ultimate tribute experience.
