Dillon Concert Association’s 2019-20 concert series will ignite imaginations. The live performances all begin at 7:30 p.m. at the University of Montana-Western Beier Auditorium.
The music of John Denver is a tribute show starring Jim Curry. His natural looks and voice are simply a pleasant coincidence that capture the true essence of John Denver’s music. With heartfelt delivery, multi-platinum hits like “Rocky Mountain High,” “Annie’s song,” and “Calypso” will fill the auditorium on Tuesday, Oct. 15.
With an extraordinarily broad vocal range and natural fluency in many musical styles, countertenor Terry Barber will take the stage Thursday, Nov. 14. “Around the World in 80 Minutes” features favorite melodies both classical and popular. “Besame Mucho,” “Danny Boy,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” and a medley of Andrew Lloyd Webber hits are likely to be heard.
Juilliard trained violinist Timothy Chooi will share a program of beloved works such as Rachmaninoff’s “Vocalise,” Fritz Kreisler’s “Liebeslied,” Aram Khachaturian’s famous “Sabre Dance” and John William’s theme from the movie Schindler’s List. Mark your calendars for Thursday, Feb. 20, 2020.
Presidio Brass has rocketed to success as the face of a bold new generation in brass entertainment. By combining a brass quintet, piano and percussion with fresh, original arrangements, their unique sound has become a trademark for the ensemble from San Diego, CA. Program highlights such as “West Side Story,” “Wizard of Oz,” and “Music Man” will be presented on Wednesday, April 22, 2020.
