Relive the songs that helped shape a generation and sing along to Country Roads, Back Home Again, Sunshine on My Shoulders, Annie’s Song and many more!
Under the direction of Mr. Holdridge, John loved how symphony orchestra’s transformed his songs into these beautiful, unforgettable pieces of work and he would introduce Lee at every concert in this way.
This is a true celebration of John’s music, no one dresses up or tries to imitate him. Lets face it, there was and always will be only one John Denver, so instead the focus is entirely on the music and with Mr. Holdridge conducting his original scores, and vocalists staying true to John Denver's style, the night is magic!
Here’s what the critics are saying:
“For the Love of John Denver...amazing!" - Calgary Herald
“An absolute must see!” - Martin Kull GM Centennial Concert Hall Winnipeg
“Rocky Mountain High [is a] spectacular evening of great music…Every tribute show should be like this one!” - The Daily Courier
Lee Holdridge is a Hollywood legend and it’s understandable why. As well as John Denver, Lee Holdridge has penned countless scores for both TV shows and motion pictures, and has either written, arranged, or conducted for numerous other respected pop artists, including Barbra Streisand, Brian May of Queen, Stevie Wonder, Al Jarreau, Dionne Warwick, Diana Ross, Natalie Cole, and opera tenor Placido Domingo. He has won seven Emmy’s and two Grammy’s.
Having Lee Holdridge conduct the Hamilton Symphony is a special treat and it promises to be a very memorable occasion that will be talked about for years to come.
