Grant Gershon, music director

What better way to celebrate the Hall’s actual anniversary than with a huge, seriously iconoclastic piece by L.A.’s consummate musical rebel? Frank Zappa experimented with a prototype back in 1970 with the LA Phil, but his gleeful, anarchic musical vision was never fully realized…until now. Salonen will call the shots at this special Green Umbrella event. (Mature subject matter; we’re not kidding.)
