Colorado Symphony tackles the Super Bowl

Posted on: January 24, 2014

“The Colorado Symphony Orchestra has Broncos fever, or fear maybe,” writes Ray Mark Rinaldi in Wednesday’s (1/22) Denver Post. “The Colorado Symphony Orchestra won’t be playing against the Broncos Feb. 2. The ensemble is moving its scheduled concert on that day to avoid conflicting with the Super Bowl. The performance will take place at noon, instead of 2:30 p.m. The Denver Broncos play the Seattle Seahawks at 4:30 p.m. The CSO isn’t going down in defeat without a sense of humor, and a nod to the home team. Ticket prices will be half-off for those who show up in Broncos colors. ‘Seahawks fans pay double,’ according to the CSO. The program on Feb. 2 has conductor Peter Oundjian leading Dvorák’s Symphony No. 7 and Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto in D major. Violinist Chee Yun is the guest soloist.”
