The Denver Broncos won Super Bowl 50 on Sunday, which means the Colorado Symphony won its side bet with the Charlotte Symphony. 

According to the agreement, the Charlotte Symphony will play Aaron Copland's "Hoedown" while the conductor sports a Peyton Manning jersey.

A little Copland should be a nice consolation prize for Panthers fans in Charlotte.

UPDATE: The Charlotte Symphony has responded to the outcome of the game:

Official statement: Congratulations to the Denver Broncos and Colorado Symphony for winning #SB50 and the #CSOvsCSO...
