Last updated: July 16, 2020
We are sad to share that, due to the continuing COVID-19 crisis, all LA Phil concerts at Walt Disney Concert Hall have been canceled through December 31, 2020.

As a result of the fall cancellation, we have moved all 2020/21 subscription packages into the 2021/22 season. This will enable subscribers to keep their seats when we return for a full season of music back at Walt Disney Concert Hall. We anticipate sharing the 21/22 season programming with you in March 2021. Subscribers can also choose to donate, create an account credit or refund. Learn more here.
Create Your Own Package
Tickets for impacted concerts in your Create Your Own Package can be donated, returned for credit or refunded.
We are here to answer any questions you may have and guide you through this process. Please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 323 850 2000 between 10am and 6pm Monday through Friday. Due to heavy phone volume and reduced staff, we encourage you to contact us by email to avoid experiencing longer than normal wait times.
What is happening in Spring 2021 – the second half of the 20/21 season?
We don’t know yet. While these concerts have not yet been canceled, we know that everything from seating configurations to which artists are able to travel will be impacted by the pandemic. If the LA Phil is permitted to stage live events in early 2021, subscribers will have the opportunity to purchase tickets before the general public.
What is the LA Phil doing during this time?
While the LA Phil’s venues – Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Hollywood Bowl and The Ford – are dark, the ongoing support of donors has enabled us to launch several new media initiatives, including In Concert at the Hollywood Bowl, a six-episode series hosted by Gustavo Dudamel airing Wednesdays at 9pm on KCET beginning August 19, Fridays at 8pm on PBS SoCal beginning August 21, and on PBS stations nationwide in early 2021; LA Phil x KCRW: World Festival at the Hollywood Bowl, a series of radio broadcasts highlighting 20 years of KCRW World Festival concerts; and Play Your Part: A Benefit for YOLA hosted by Gustavo and Thomas Wilkins and featuring Brandi Carlile, which will be streaming on demand from August 7-14 on the Hollywood Bowl website. Learn more about these programs and more here.
How can I help?
If you are able, please consider donating your tickets to help support the LA Phil and Learning programs like YOLA, which have continued to serve children in under-resourced communities throughout this crisis. Between the concert cancellations at Walt Disney Concert Hall and the Hollywood Bowl this year, the LA Phil will lose approximately $90M as a result of the pandemic. We need your support to help sustain our work during this period, as we continue to realize Music and Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel’s vision of music for all.
We will continue to closely monitor updates and recommended guidance from our public health experts during this unprecedented and fast-developing situation. From all of us at the LA Phil, stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to inviting you back to experience great music soon.
