Mike Eldred & The Very Best of John Denver with Symphony Orchestra
Mike Eldred offers an evening of some of the most familiar and beautifully simple melodies and lyrics ever written. John Denver's songs have stayed with us for decades and remind us of our responsibility to each other and to our land. Eldred’s interpretations of these classic songs, rendered in his soaring tenor voice, provide a moving, nostalgic, and quintessentially musical evening. It is an homage, not an impersonation. This concert debuted to critical acclaim with the Nashville Symphony in November 2011.

"Mike Eldred's soaring voice clearly captures the spirit of John Denver's music, and there's nothing like hearing him perform these unforgettable songs backed by a full orchestra. The Nashville Symphony is proud to have presented this wonderful evening of entertainment, and I can say from firsthand experience that the audience loved and completely connected with Mike's stunning performance."

“Mike and his band were a real pleasure to work with! Combining his music with a live orchestra was thrilling for our audiences – they heard the music that they know and love accompanied by lush symphonic sounds. Mike is a fantastic musician, and he has a real passion for the music of John Denver; it is so clear that he was truly inspired by Denver’s writing and work when he created this show.”
