Buzz Kill: Colorado Symphony Orchestra to Cancel 'High Note Series' After Latest Controversy with Denver City Officials
The Colorado Symphony Orchestra may have hit a snag in its latest "High Note Series" production. Denver city officials claim that the mass consumption of pot in a public setting coincides with the city's ordinance barring such events.
While the city can't stop the concert from happening, a letter from city attorneys urge the CSO to cancel the May 23 gala at the Space Gallery.
And if the orchestra takes it upon itself to go as planned, the city will take action.
"We will exercise any and all options available to the city of Denver to halt the event and hold the business owners (and) event organizers responsible for any violations of law," says the letter.
