Born between 1965 and 1980, Generation X is the dark horse demographic dwarfed in number by the Boomers and Millennials on either side. While small in number, their collective impact on our culture continues to be felt today. Combining orchestral concerts curated by Thomas Adès with popular presentations and humanities conversations, the LA Phil’s Gen X festival takes a multidisciplinary, multi-genre look at the slackers, hackers, and latch-key kids who were born analog and became digital. 

Additional programming to be announced soon.
