Postponed – Jim Curry Presents the Music of John Denver @ Coggon Opera House
Apr 25 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

In accordance with CDC recommendations, we are postponing the this performance. We are working with Jim Curry to reschedule in the fall.

The music of the late John Denver is like an old friend, outlasting trends and standing the test of time. Join acclaimed performer Jim Curry at the Coggon Opera House for this tribute to the music of one of the most beloved singer/songwriters ever to grace the stage.

General admission seating. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at the door. Call (319) 435-2071 to reserve will call tickets.

Tribute artist Jim Curry, whose voice was heard in the CBS-TV movie Take Me Home: The John Denver Story, has performed Denver’s music in sold out shows throughout the country and has emerged as today’s top performer of Denver’s vast legacy of multi-platinum hits. Jim’s uncanny ability to mirror John’s voice and clean-cut look takes you back to the time when “Rocky Mountain High,” “Sunshine,” “Calypso,” and “Annie’s Song” topped the charts, and his popular music had the heartfelt message of caring for the earth and caring for each other.
