Sequester Impacts Colorado Symphony
DENVER (CBS4)– The budget cuts at the federal level will be making an impact on the music scene in Colorado.
The sequestration cuts have changed the Colorado Symphony season.
The U.S. Army Chorus is a nearly 60-year-old military music organization. It will not be able to perform as scheduled with the Colorado Symphony Pops on May 18. Because of the sequestration the group cannot travel outside Washington, DC.
In their place Colorado Symphony Artistic Director Andrew Litton will be on the keyboard for a performance of George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue.”
Those with tickets to the U.S. Army Chorus can use them to the “Rhapsody in Blue” concert or call the symphony box office to discuss other options.
