LA Phil Los Angeles Philharmonic at Walt Disney Concert Hall and beyond...
(2121)

The LA Phil presents an inspiring array of music from all genres at two of L.A.’s iconic venues- Walt Disney Concert Hall and the Hollywood Bowl- to audiences of all ages and economic backgrounds. With the preeminent Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestra at the foundation of its offerings, the LA Phil aims to enrich and transform lives through music, with a robust mix of artistic, education and community programs. The Los Angeles Philharmonic is praised as one of the world's top orchestras, renowned for its innovative spirit, the virtuosity of its musicians, and its dynamic Music & Artistic Director, Gustavo Dudamel. Founded in 1919, the Philharmonic has grown steadily in stature, developing close bonds with such major music directors as Zubin Mehta, Carlo Maria Giulini and Esa-Pekka Salonen. In every case, that deep connection has helped define the direction and spirit of the orchestra and of the entire organization.

The Los Angeles Philharmonic Association, under the vibrant leadership of Music & Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel, presents an inspiring array of music from all genres - orchestral, chamber and Baroque music, organ and celebrity recitals, new music, jazz, world music and pop - at two of L.A.’s iconic venues, Walt Disney Concert Hall (www.LAPhil.com) and the Hollywood Bowl (http://www.HollywoodBowl.com). The LA Phil's season extends from September through May at Walt Disney Concert Hall, and throughout the summer at the Hollywood Bowl. With the preeminent Los Angeles Philharmonic at the foundation of its offerings, the LA Phil aims to enrich and transform lives through music, with a robust mix of artistic, education and community programs.
