Colorado Symphony to perform music of John Williams at Red Rocks

The concerts will feature music from Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Harry Potter and more.

MORRISON, Colo. — Colorado Symphony’s full ensemble will hold its first live performances of 2021 at Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

The symphony orchestra will hold two limited-capacity performances of "The Music of John Williams" on Sunday, May 23 and Tuesday, May 25 at the Colorado amphitheater.

Conducted by Colorado Symphony Resident Conductor Christopher Dragon, the performances will feature selections from "Star Wars," "Jurassic Park," "Indiana Jones," "Superman," "Harry Potter," "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial" and more.

Tickets for the two concerts will be available starting Friday, April 23 at 10 a.m. at coloradosymphony.org/tickets or by phone at 303-623-7876.

General admission tickets in the Visible and CityPop sections start at $70 and general admission tickets in the Jeep and Coca-Cola sections start at $55.

Red Rocks announced last month that it received permission from the state to open at a 2,500 person capacity, beginning Thursday, April 22, with the potential to allow more people at shows if COVID-19 conditions improve. Red Rocks’ normal capacity is just over 9,500 people.

Brian Kitts, a spokesperson for Denver Arts and Venues, said Red Rocks has gone through the Five-Star Certification process. This means concert attendees should expect protocols like masks and social distancing.    

Owned and operated by the City of Denver, the concert venue at Red Rocks Park has been home to some of the most iconic concerts in history, from artists such as The Beatles, U2 and Sting.

Located just west of the Mile High City, Red Rocks Park features 738 acres of hiking trails, geological wonders and astounding views.
