The Los Angeles Philharmonic and Classical California KUSC continue their annual radio broadcast partnership, reaching listeners across Southern California. This broadcast series, recorded during the LA Phil’s 2022/23 season at Walt Disney Concert Hall, pairs the orchestra with an impressive roster of guest artists and conductors, showcasing an eclectic repertoire that includes world premieres from composers Donghoon Shin, Clarice Assad, Ellen Reid, and Gabriella Smith. Through the organizations’ ongoing partnership with WFMT and the WFMT Radio Network, the 2023 broadcast series will also be syndicated nationwide.

The first concert in the 2023 broadcast series will air locally on KUSC’s SoCal Sunday Night program, the station’s weekly local concert spotlight, on Sunday, April 2, 2023, at 7:00pm. It will feature Music & Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel leading the Los Angeles Philharmonic in a program of works by LA Phil Creative Chair John Adams, Mozart, and Julián Orbón.
