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.
