Colorado Symphony Orchestra is hosting weed-friendly concerts

High on Bach: Colorado Orchestra Gets Smoker Friendly

The unlikely connection between classical music and weed is now about to become commonplace thanks to the Colorado Symphony Orchestra. The CEO of Colorado’s Symphony Orchestra, Jerome Kern, has planned a series of “cannabis-friendly” fundraising concerts to draw more interest in classical music. Their fundraising effort is also being held to combat concerns with their budget, an issue that has taken away other orchestral ensembles in the area. Colorado’s only full-time orchestra titled the special series “Classically Cannabis: The High Note Series.”

When asked about the connection between weed and classical music, the CEO told the AP:

“The cannabis industry obviously opens the door even further to a younger, more diverse audience.”

According to Kern, there is a payoff for the weed-related companies interested in sponsoring their “High Note Series,” in which he stated:

“They receive the legitimacy of being associated with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra.”

The downside to the event is that there will be no greenery available to purchase on the premises, according to the events listing on the symphony website. B.Y.O.C. (Bring Your Own Cannabis) is what the symphony has suggested.

The first three shows consist of small ensembles of symphony players at a downtown Denver gallery, then finish off with a concert at the Red Rocks Amphitheater, where the symphony and pop/rock ensembles will perform. Now is your chance to blaze and hear renditions of Bach and Beethoven.
