(Radio.com) In a bold move, the Colorado Symphony Orchestra is partnering with the state's burgeoning marijuana industry to raise money and awareness for classical music with a series of "weed friendly" events at downtown Denver's appropriately named Space Gallery. The first show is set for May 23, with additional events planned for July 18 and August 15.

The concert series has been coined "Classically Cannabis: The High Notes Series," with CBS Denver reporting that the shows will culminate in one big classical music smoke-out, um, blow-out at the legendary Red Rocks outdoor amphitheater on September 13 (CBS News makes a point to emphasize that cannabis consumption is strictly prohibited at the Red Rocks event, although patrons have notoriously been known to ignore that fact).

"This partnership is part of an overall effort to reach out to every segment of our community," said Colorado Symphony CEO Jerome H. Kern. "Like the Colorado Symphony, the cannabis industry is entrepreneurial, innovative and responsive to the people of Colorado. These businesses have expressed a willingness to support the Colorado Symphony's mission. Our doors are open to any legal, legitimate business that wants to help."

The series is curated by Edible Events Co. and presented by Ideal 420 Soils, with additional support from The Farm of Boulder and Gaia Plant Based Medicine with all proceeds benefiting the Colorado Symphony. more on this story
