On Edibles at the Colorado Symphony Orchestra's 'Classically Cannabis: The High Note Series' Red Rocks Concert

The Colorado Symphony has ended its run of its invite-only "Classically Cannabis: The High Note Series" concerts last month. To recap: The CSO now allows the partaking of marijuana and alcoholic drinks during their performances. To wit, the musicians themselves are no longer required to wear tuxedos. Fittingly for a regular pot smoker, the OC Weekly's Chris Walker posted their review of their end of summer Red Rocks performance a month late. To join in the festivities, proper, Walker first went shopping for edibles at a local dispensary: the Denver Wellness Center.

"Do you have anything that goes well with Beethoven?" asked Walker of the store clerk.

The review continues on as Walker and his friend Rachel consume edibles and sit through the performance of pieces by John Adams, Jonny Greenwood and John Williams.

Although the CSO allows one to consume marijuana products during their performances, which are sponsored by the cannabis industry, there is no sale of items. Walker explains that is due to Colorado's 64th Amendment.

You can, however, snag a 10-percent-off coupon for a future purchase and an oddly placed glow stick.

We here at Classcialite thank, as did conductor Scott O'Neil, the Edible Events Co. and sponsor Bhang Medicinal Chocolate, for the funds to CSO, but the question remains, do the kids like classical music now?
