Denver, CO (PRWEB) September 10, 2014
The National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) is joining other leading marijuana industry businesses to sponsor “Red Rocks on a High Note,” a Colorado Symphony showcase at Red Rocks Amphitheatre outside Denver on Saturday, September 13. The event represents a major contribution to the arts by the legal cannabis industry and sets a precedent for even greater involvement by cannabis businesses in the civic and philanthropic lives of their communities.
“We’re very proud to support the Colorado Symphony and this great event, and we’re equally proud that so many other NCIA member-businesses have offered their support as well,” said NCIA executive director Aaron Smith. “Our organization and our businesses want to be engaged and generous members of our communities, and this is just one example of how we’ve committed to that goal.”
“Red Rocks on a High Note” is presented by NCIA Sustaining Member Bhang Medicinal Chocolate. Headline sponsors are NCIA, Leafly, and Gaia Plant-Based Medicine. Additional sponsors include Terrapin Care Station, Walking Raven Retail Marijuana Center, The Farm, LivWell, Julie’s Baked Goods, Northern Lights Cannabis Company, Vicente Sederberg, LLC, Edible Events Co., and Cannapages. All of the sponsoring businesses are NCIA members.
The musical program will include pieces by contemporary composers John Williams, John Adams, and Johnny Greenwood of Radiohead, in addition to works by Beethoven, Debussy, Berlioz and Vivaldi.
“This program will take the audience through a true musical adventure, with music that evokes a range of moods, from ecstatic to romantic to reflective,” said Jerome H. Kern, CEO and co-chair of the Colorado Symphony Board of Trustees in a press release announcing the event. “Our goal is to attract people of all backgrounds, to show them that the Colorado Symphony is their orchestra, too.”
