Glacier Symphony and Chorale will launch its Cosmic Vibrations concert series on Sept. 17 and 18 with The Very Best of John Denver: A Symphony Pops concert that showcases the dynamic, versatile range of the orchestra and will feature one of Broadway’s most revered tenors, Mike Eldred.

“It’s a perfect show to launch our 34th concert season,” said GSC Music Director and conductor John Zoltek. “It follows on our successful summer season of concerts; July’s Summer Pops concert at Rebecca Farm and the week long Festival Amadeus that wrapped up in August. This performing ensemble of musicians has such an incredibly wide range, from the complexities of classical to the very singable music of John Denver. It is a joy to lead them on these musical journeys!”

Mike Eldred will lend his soaring lyrical voice to an exceptional orchestra scoring of John Denver’s greatest hits. The concerts will be held at Whitefish Performing Arts Center on Saturday, Sept. 17 at 7:30 p.m. followed on Sept. 18 with a Sunday matinee at 3 p.m. Visit the website www.gscmusic.org to learn more about the season and purchase tickets or call 406-407-7000.
