The BYOC (bring your own cannabis) series includes performances May 23, July 18 and Aug. 15 at Space Gallery in Denver. A Sept. 13 date at Red Rocks is also in the works.
Edible Events, a catering company that “showcases the very best Colorado has to offer in the culinary, cannabis and art scene,” organized the concerts as a benefit for the orchestra.
“Like the Colorado Symphony, the cannabis industry is entrepreneurial, innovative and responsive to the people of Colorado,” Colorado Symphony CEO Jerome H. Kern said in a press release. “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.”
Tickets for the first three Classically Cannabis concerts are $75. They go on sale at noon Wednesday.
