Over the season, the LA Phil explores American music and artists that give voice to the many definitions of being American. The stories these artists share – those both popularly told and those often neglected – shape the way we understand ourselves as residents of the United States. Look for opportunities to engage in these themes beyond the concert hall with lectures, exhibits, and special performances to be announced later this year.
