We're excited to announce that we're mere days away from our 2011 European Tour! This seven-city, 13-concert whirlwind will take the orchestra to some of the grandest, most renowned concert halls throughout the Continent, beginning in Lisbon, Portugal and ending in the historic music capital of Europe, Vienna, Austria. The LA Phil will alternate between two signature programs, playing one per night in each of the seven cities (excpet for Madrid, where they're only playing one night and thus one program).

We've listed below the tour schedule, as well as what program the orchestra will perform -- and, if you happen to find yourself in one of the cities while we're there, we've included a link to each hall the LA Phil is performing at. The info follows below:
