The Colorado Symphony has teamed up with Wonderbound, a contemporary ballet company, to host an international competition in which one original composition will be picked for a performance held next year. The compositions that win the competition will be the soundtrack to two live dance performances premiering in Denver. The Colorado Symphony has been collaborating regularly with Wonderbound for about five years. The idea for the competition sprouted from discussions on trying something new for the upcoming performance season.

Following its first, sold-out experiment in socially distanced concerts at Red Rocks last week, Colorado Symphony has announced another 10 shows in its Red Rocks Amphitheatre acoustic series. Limited to 175 audience members at the 9,450-capacity venue, the shows take advantage of Red Rocks’ open-air beauty and acoustically tuned environs to present unamplified sets from the stage. They also represent the first proper concerts performed at the world-famous venue in the 2020 summer season.

Red Rocks Amphitheater will hold its first shows since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The five-night concert series, called “Acoustic on the Rocks,” is being performed by the Colorado Symphony. The sold-out, acoustic-only performances will be from July 29 to Aug. 2. Organizers say they will look much different than what concert goers are used to, due to a cap in ticket sales and COVID-19 safety precautions. “We really want to show people that this can be done safely and everyone can be comfortable,” said Anthony Pierce, Chief Artistic Officer with the symphony. “We feel it’s a milestone. The orchestra hasn’t been together in any capacity since early March.”
