DENVER (CBS4) – Summer in Colorado is a great season for music lovers and the Denver Botanic Gardens is a favorite venue in the area.

Summertime concerts at the UMB Bank Amphitheater have grown in size and stature through the years, but what hasn’t changed is the opportunity to enjoy great music in the gardens and under a warm Colorado sky.

There are two venues for the Denver Botanic Gardens, one at their main York Street facility another at the Botanic Gardens at Chatfield. That’s where the B-52s will kick off the season on July 4. Tickets run between $50 and $55.

On July 17, Natalie Merchant takes the stage with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra at the Gardens on York Street in the UMB Bank Amphitheater. Tickets for this show range from $63 to $68.

There are many more shows to plan for, including artists like Mary Chapin Carpenter, Diana Krall and Kenny Loggins.
