Friends at Play

Watch & Listen

Being a Friend of the LA Phil means getting incredible behind-the-scenes experiences. Please enjoy some special details from our recent events.

Artist Salon on May 22, 2019 with Ailyn Perez

Ailyn shared her dynamic experience as an operatic soprano and treated us to an unforgettable solo performance, an engaging Q&A, and mingled with guests. See photos from this lovely evening here.

YOLA Tour at Torres on September 23, 2019 was a success!

See the feedback from one of our dear Friends:

Thanks for a wonderful evening with the YOLA students at Torres high school. I left feeling so reassured. The program is everything I hoped for. The sessions for young and older students are so well organized and managed. The kids were totally engaged in their playing. I saw a lot of encouragement, nurturing and instruction going on. Ian, who led us through and is the onsite director, and Deborah from your office were great.  I'm in for renewing my support for 2020.

Best wishes,



Music Library tour on October 8

Friends enjoyed mingling and hearing from our renowned Music Librarian Kazue McGregor who has been with our orchestra for 36 years, all while backstage in our state-of-the-art Music Library at Walt Disney Concert Hall.
