Classically Cannabis: The High Note Series marks a growing partnership between the Colorado Symphony and the burgeoning cannabis industry in Colorado. The series will culminate with a Red Rocks concert on Saturday, September 13; details to be announced soon. Please note that the consumption of cannabis at Red Rocks is prohibited by law.
“This partnership is part of an overall effort to reach out to every segment of our community,” says Jerome H. Kern, the Colorado Symphony’s CEO and, with Mary Rossick Kern, co-chair of its Board of Trustees. “Like the Colorado Symphony, the cannabis industry is entrepreneurial, innovative and responsive to the people of Colorado. These businesses have expressed a willingness to support the Colorado Symphony’s mission. Our doors are open to any legal, legitimate business that wants to help.”
“This is the perfect partnership for Edible Events Co, Colorado’s premier producer of cannabis-friendly events,” says Jane West, founder of Jane West Productions, parent company of Edible Events Co. “I’m proud to be associated with an event that provides cannabis businesses an opportunity to support the local arts community. I look forward to producing many more fundraisers for the Colorado Symphony and other local organizations that the cannabis community can come together to support.”
Tickets to Classically Cannabis go on sale Wednesday, April 30 at noon. Tickets are $75 each and include beer, wine and light bites from local food trucks. All events are BYOC – except for the Red Rocks concert. Tickets are available at coloradosymphony.org. All events held at Space Gallery, 400 Santa Fe Boulevard. The Space Gallery events are being held on private property and are restricted to adults 21 years of age or older. No cannabis will be sold at these events and the ticket price is wholly unrelated to whether adults choose to use cannabis or not. Alternative modes of transportation are encouraged; ticket purchases will be provided with discounts for local transportation services.
At the cannabis concerts, will audience members hold up their Bic lighters? Stand on their chairs? Will the concertmaster smash his violin?
