DENVER — Denver Botanic Gardens has canceled its 2020 Summer Concert Series.

Randy Newman, DeVotchKa, Jesse & Joy, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Chris Botti, and José González were some of the artists scheduled to visit the York Street gardens this summer.

"Denver Botanic Gardens and Swallow Hill Music look forward to, and are preparing for, the day when music is again in full bloom at the Gardens," said a statement on Denver Botanic Gardens' website.
