The Los Angeles Philharmonic celebrates each of its season openings with extraordinary events that have become the city's proudest cultural traditions. Set in two iconic concert venues, these exciting parties raise significant operating funds which support the LA Phil and its education initiatives
On Tuesday, September 29, 2015, the LA Phil Winter Gala: The Brilliance of Beethoven, kicked off the orchestra's winter season. The evening's concert explored the works of Beethoven and set the stage for October's Immortal Beethoven festival. Dudamel led his two orchestras --the LA Phil and the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra --on a journey through the composer's nine symphonies. The glamorous black-tie celebration started with red-carpet arrivals, a pre-concert reception and prime seating for the concert, followed by dinner and dancing under the stars on Grand Avenue.
The Brilliance of Beethoven raised more than $3.5 million for the LA Phil and its education programs, which serve more than 150,000 youths, families, and teachers every year.

Gala Chairs Doug Martinet and Teena Hostovich, Sponsorship Chairs Raymundo Baltazar and Jonathan Weedman
The LA Phil kicked off the summer season at one of our nation's premier outdoor music venues with Opening Night at the Hollywood Bowl. Guests enjoyed a VIP pre-concert reception, gourmet dinner and a spectacular concert under the stars.
This year's concert featured Journey, the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra led by conductor Thomas Wilkins, and Youth Orchestra Los Angeles. Opening Night at the Bowl is one of the most anticipated highlights of the summer season.
This landmark benefit concert raised over $1 million for the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s music education programs, which serve more than 150,000 youths, families and teachers every year.
