Last month, Red Rocks returned with Acoustic on the Rocks, a series of live acoustic performances by members of the Colorado Symphony. Now the series’ coordinators have extended it for another 10 performances.

On August 12-16 and August 19-23, visitors to Colorado’s outdoor amphitheater can once again enjoy live, classical music performed by members of the Colorado Symphony. The shows will mirror the first set of shows, featuring works from composers like Mozart and Tchaikovsky played by an ensemble of 20 string musicians.

The August 19-23 shows, meanwhile, will feature Percussion and Brass ensembles. A group of 19 musicians will play both classical and pop music. Both programs are 75 minutes long and will begin at 7 p.m.

Acoustic on the Rocks is the first series of concerts to be played out of the Red Rocks since the beginning of the pandemic. To reduce risk of infection, the shows will be ticketed at reduced capacity, and groups will be expected to sit at least six feet apart. All patrons are required to wear facial coverings.

Tickets are available at AXS for $65. The first few shows sold out within hours, so if you want tickets you’d better hurry!
