So bad. So good.
This concert was originally so naughty, er, good and popular, that the Grand Junction Symphony Orchestra is presenting an encore. And at a church, no less.
“Sinners & Saints, The Good, The Bad & The Ugly” begins at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Connection Church, 655 N. First St.
Along with more room for those who want to attend, “Sinners & Saints” will feature drinking songs, gospel music, “tunes of debauchery, doctrine and fun,” according to a news release form the symphony.
Tickets cost $30 and include a glass of wine and appetizers.
Tickets can be purchased by calling 243-6787 or by going to gjso.org or the symphony office at 414 Main St.
