Founded in 1919, the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association's mission is to perform, present, and promote music in its varied forms at the highest level of excellence to a diverse and large audience, both at Walt Disney Concert Hall and the Hollywood Bowl. LAPA is dedicated to the work required to achieve pre-eminent status in the music world of the 21st century.
LAPA operates with 130 full-time administrative staff positions. At full strength, the Los Angeles Philharmonic consists of 106 members of Professional Musicians Local 47. Together with Hollywood Bowl house staff and seasonal employees, members of the separate Hollywood Bowl Orchestra (also with Local 47), Treasurers & Ticket Sellers Local 857 Audience Services plus summer and winter Box Office staffs, and IATSE Local 33 stagehands, the total workforce reaches 1,000 members. Due to different LA County lease agreements for the separate venues, the Music Center provides all house, security and parking staff for Walt Disney Concert Hall, while LAPA directly hires or out-sources these services at the Hollywood Bowl. All food services and related staffing is provided by the Patina Group.
