Colorado Symphony changes concert schedule to support Broncos

January 24, 2014

Because of a conflict with the Super Bowl, the Colorado Symphony’s Masterworks concert on Feb. 2 will begin at noon, instead of the original time of 2:30 p.m.

The rescheduled concert will allow ticket holders and the orchestra time to enjoy pre-game festivities leading up to Super Bowl XLVIII, which pits the Denver Broncos against the Seattle Seahawks.

The Colorado Symphony will host a pre-concert Broncos Breakfast at 11 a.m., to include coffee and orange and blue doughnuts.

Tickets for the Feb. 2 concert are 50 percent off for those in Broncos orange and blue, available in person at the CSO box office. For those wearing Seattle Seahawks merchandise, the price is double.

“It’s exciting that the Broncos are in the Super Bowl; the whole city should have fun and enjoy this moment,” said Jerry Kern, CEO and co-chair of the Colorado Symphony Board of Trustees. “Now you can start your day with the Symphony, hear some great music, get primed for the big game and make it back in time for the tailgate party.”

This weekend’s Masterworks concert highlights Benjamin Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra, one of the most popular works of the 21st Century. Featuring conductor Peter Oundjian; Chee Yun, violin. Performances are Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 at 7:30 p.m., and at noon on Feb. 2. All performances are at Boettcher Concert Hall.

Tickets are available at www.coloradosymphony.org, by calling 303-623-7876, and in person at the Colorado Symphony Box Office, located inside Boettcher Concert  Hall in the Denver Performing Arts Complex. Student tickets are available for $10 at the box office. The box office is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, noon to 6 p.m. Saturday, and two hours before every performance.

Letterman and Strahan break down Manning’s ‘Omaha’

January 17, 2014

Late-night talk show host David Letterman used his national forum to ask the question on many football fans’ minds when former football great, talk-show host and Fox-TV NFL analyst Michael Strahan guested on the show Tuesday.

“I’m so tired of people screaming, ‘Omaha’…,” Letterman told Strahan, referring to Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning‘s favorite cue at the line of scrimmage. “Why does he do that?”

“Because (he) likes the steaks,” Strahan said.

Letterman also questioned why Manning moves around so much prior to the snap.

“When he goes to the line he looks like he’s got another job,” the talk-show host said. “He looks like he’s working part-time at a gift card store picking out stuff, running around, ‘Oh my God,’ we’re out of ribbon.’ Then he comes back and takes the snap. Is he the first guy to be so darn busy at his second job as a quarterback?”

“I don’t think anybody has made it look as difficult as Peyton,” Strahan said. “I’m still not buying all that is necessary. I think he says, ‘I’m doing all of this so kids at home think I’m cool.’ There’s no way, Dave, the other 10 guys on offense understand all that stuff. They’re not that smart.”

As to Strahan’s prediction for the Super Bowl? “Denver Broncos versus the Seattle Seahawks. But I could change my mind on Sunday.”
