In a few short weeks, the doors of Walt Disney Concert Hall will open wide once again and welcome those throughout Los Angeles to share in the affirming power of music. The pandemic created unique challenges for the performing arts, and we celebrate this moment of re-opening with and in honor of you, the generous donors who have sustained us. Throughout the past many months, your gifts have supported our orchestra and staff, enabled artistry to continue through vivid digital content, and provided a path forward. At this pivotal moment, we welcome you back to Walt Disney Concert Hall, the home and heartbeat of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

You’ll notice heightened safety procedures throughout Walt Disney Concert Hall, including enhanced cleaning measures, hand sanitization stations, mask policies, reduced contact through digital ticketing, and an improved air circulation and filtration system that made The Music Center the first performing arts center to earn the UL Verified Healthy Buildings Mark for Indoor Air Quality.

Artistically, the months ahead are shaped by Music & Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel’s vision for a dynamic, relevant, and innovative season that reflects our moment in history and the LA Phil’s commitment to edifying the collective artistic voices of the past, present, and future. Festivals will explore the vibrant and inventive musical scenes across the Americas, showcase the achievements and impacts of Gen X, and celebrate the role music and artists play in advancing social change with Power to the People! We will also spotlight the groundbreaking work of adventurous new film composers, revel in the ineffable orchestral music of Duke Ellington, and listen anew to beloved music from the symphonic tradition, performed at the highest level by Gustavo, the LA Phil, and renowned guest artists.
It is a powerhouse of a season, designed with you in mind, and made possible through your generosity. Your gifts are at work every day to strengthen the Los Angeles Philharmonic and bring the best of music that enriches all our lives.
