he Colorado Symphony’s “Classically Cannabis” fundraisers will go on — a bit more discreetly.

After the orchestra said it would hold a series of bring-your-own-marijuana fundraisers sponsored by the state’s newly legal cannabis industry, Denver officials objected last week, warning that those events could run afoul of laws banning the public consumption of marijuana.

So the symphony, which had tried to organize the fundraisers as private events all along, took further steps: it made them invitation-only, removed information about them from its website and refunded all tickets that had been purchased when the events were advertised publicly.

Jerome H. Kern, the Colorado Symphony’s chief executive, said that its goal had been to raise money for the orchestra while reaching out to a culturally diverse audience. “We’re pleased to present these events in a way that will allow us to pursue these goals and move forward with the business of operating the Colorado Symphony,” he said in a statement.

Yes. No one will figure it out. Because it’s a secret now and no longer on their website.
