Glacier Symphony launches Cosmic Vibrations its 34th season with The Very best of John Denver a Symphonic Pops concert featuring Broadway Star, Mike Eldred By Marti Ebbert Kurth
Glacier Symphony and Chorale will launch its Cosmic Vibrations concert series on September 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,” comments John Zoltek, who enters his 20th season with the GSC as both Music Director and conductor. “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!” Zoltek says the upcoming season will bring a refreshing mix of both popular classics as well as a host of internationally acclaimed soloists to play with orchestra. New additions include a three night Easter Festival in April that will showcase both the orchestra and chorale and a solo pianist in three distinctly different concerts.
