Each year, the LA Phil presents Symphonies for Schools: an exciting, in-person concert experience for students from throughout Los Angeles. We have offered these free concerts to hundreds of thousands of children since our first season in 1919. The century-long tradition is returning to Walt Disney Concert Hall this season.
