The 20/21 Season
Whether it’s a symphony written 250 years ago or a world premiere given today, music is created anew each time it’s performed. That understanding of music – as a vital, living thing with something to say – is at the heart of what we do.
From the vibrant cultural scenes of modern-day Mexico City, Seoul, and Belo Horizonte to the captivating stories of our own friends and neighbors, this season features premieres from dynamic and emerging voices and long beloved classics filtered through our contemporary experiences as artists and audiences.
Join us at Walt Disney Concert Hall for a season of exceptional moments.
