The Colorado Symphony announced today that local Colorado band DeVotchKa will return to Red Rocks Amphitheatre with the Colorado Symphony on June 16, 2016 for the fifth annual summer collaboration. This year, the concert will open with NBC Last Comic Standing winner Josh Blue.
DeVotchKa with the Colorado Symphony Featuring Special Guest Josh Blue
Christopher Dragon, conductor
Red Rocks Amphitheatre
June 16, 2016 – 7:30pm
This joint concert between DeVotchKa, the Colorado Symphony, and unique guest artists has become a Colorado summer tradition. Now in its fifth year and with new music – this concert is set to be even more spectacular than in years past.
DeVotchKa’s lush instrumentation combined with the full orchestral power of the Colorado Symphony sets the stage for an unforgettable evening. This concert will follow DeVotchKa’s unique partnership with the Denver Center for the Performing Arts for the musical Sweeney Todd where they will be performing a reinvention of Sondheim’s magnificent musical thriller.
Comedian Josh Blue exploded onto the national comedy scene by capturing the attention and endearment of the country as the winner of NBC’s Last Comic Standing. His stand-up routine is in a constant state of evolution and his off-the-cuff improvisational skills guarantee that no two shows are exactly alike.
This concert is presented by Arrow Electronics, and supported by KBCO and Westword.
Tickets are one sale Feb. 19, 2016 at ColoradoSymphony.org.
