The Los Angeles Philharmonic and Classical KUSC continue their annual radio broadcast partnership, reaching listeners across Southern California. This broadcast series, recorded during the LA Phil’s 2021/22 concert 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 Steven Mackey, Julia Adolphe, Daniel Bjarnason, Gonzalo Garrido-Lecca, Francisco Cortés-Álvarez, and Angélica Negrón. Through the organizations' ongoing partnership with WFMT and the WFMT Radio Network, the 2022 broadcast series will also be syndicated nationwide.

The first concert in the 2022 broadcast series will air locally on KUSC’s SoCal Sunday Night program, the station’s weekly local concert spotlight, on Sunday, April 10, 2022, at 7:00pm, and features Music & Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel leading the Los Angeles Philharmonic and soprano Golda Schultz in a program of Schoenberg and Strauss.
