This event started out with the orchestra with a couple of scores. The John Denver Tribute had some not so memorable songs mixed in with a couple of really good ones like Thank God I'm a Country Boy, and Country Roads. The Fireworks were not...continued

This is probably the 6th or 7th 4th of July concert we've attended at the Verizon Amphitheater. Each year is a spectacular event. John Denver's music as interpreted by Jim Curry took me back to remembering all the great JD songs. A reminder of the...continued

We had a lovely picnic on the lawn and enjoyed the music very much. Jim Curry really sounded like John Denver! Loved the patriotic theme and the fireworks were fabulous.

Pacific Symphony performed a few pieces.
Then the John Denver tribute - with a look alike, sound alike. Played mostly unrecognizable John Denver tunes. About 60/40 - unknown tunes and well-known.
Pacific Symphony then really excelled at the...continued

Very enjoyable evening! We were amazed how much Jin Curry sounded like John Denver, but didn't seem like an "impersonator". He really seemed to know and respect John Denver and the program was alovely tribute to him. The fireworks were fun, too.

Really good show! I probably would have preferred hearing more of the more popular John Denver songs but still really enjoyed it. Tribute to the Armed Forces was excellent and enjoyed the intimate firework display.

The musical part was very good. The firework planning was terrible. If you were in the Orchestra area and to the right of the stage, it was impossible to see the fireworks because they were set off in the parking lot. You had to be able to see...continued

The Denver Tribute was too long. It would have been better if they cut it to halve the time and included more traditional patriotic music.

We were surprised how much Jin Curry sounded like John Denver. I just played a 30 second video clip I took of one of his songs and you would swear it was the real Country Boy!

Fine for 4th of July. Music and entertainment were good. The conductor was the best entertainment. He really likes his job. The crowd was older and not too enthusiastic. Fireworks not too spectacular.

The music was great and the John Denver tribute was wonderful. However, the fireworks were very disappointing. The worst part was exiting the theater--there seemed to be only one way out for thousands of people and it seemed very dangerous---had...continued

I was dissapointed. Too much John Denver. The emphises on the country genre was a little extreme. I liked the patriotic music, armed forces tribute and fireworks.
