LA Phil 100: The Los Angeles Philharmonic Centennial Birthday Gala aired on May 8, featuring Gustavo Dudamel, Zubin Mehta, and Esa-Pekka Salonen in a once-in-a-century concert. Before the broadcast, several musicians and staff joined together to give a behind-the-scenes look into that gala concert and the season that led up to it.

This once-in-a-century concert experience is also available for purchase on Blu-ray and DVD, and includes the exclusive 52-minute documentary, LA Phil: The Tradition of the New.
