10-Week Series Airs on Classical KUSC
KUSC Broadcast Series of Los Angeles Philharmonic Made Possible
Through Support of Office of Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky
Ten Los Angeles Philharmonic concerts from the current Hollywood Bowl season will be broadcast on Classical KUSC beginning Sunday, August 4 at 7:00 PM. This is the seventh year of the orchestra’s summer partnership with the Los Angeles listener-sponsored classical music radio station.
The concerts will be recorded live on select Classical Tuesdays and Thursdays featuring the LA Phil with a stellar roster of artists and conductors. Hosted and produced by KUSC’s Brian Lauritzen and executive produced by KUSC’s Gail Eichenthal, the programs air weekly at 7:00 PM on Sundays from August 4 through October 6, and are heard throughout much of Southern California on 91.5 Classical KUSC, 88.5 KPSC in Palm Springs, 91.1 KDSC in Thousand Oaks, 99.7 KESC in Morro Bay and San Luis Obispo, and 88.7 KQSC in Santa Barbara. The programs can also be heard online at KUSC.org. Most concerts will be available for online streaming for one week following the broadcast. Interviews and features with soloists and orchestra members throughout the series offer unique insights and give listeners a more in-depth perspective. The project is made possible through support from the office of Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky.
The series opens Sunday, August 4 at 7:00 PM with a broadcast of conductor Michael Tilson Thomas leading the Los Angeles Philharmonic and soloists Kiera Duffy (soprano), Sasha Cooke (mezzo-soprano) and the Los Angeles Master Chorale in Mahler’s Symphony No. 2, “Resurrection” (recorded on July 9).

One of the largest natural amphitheaters in the world, with a seating capacity of nearly 18,000, the HOLLYWOOD BOWL has been the summer home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic since its official opening in 1922, and is home to the best and brightest in all genres of music. It remains one of the best deals in Los Angeles; to this day, $1 buys a seat at the top of the Bowl for many of the Los Angeles Philharmonic's concerts. The venue offers something for everyone, from its sizzling summer evening concerts to the daytime summer arts festival for children, “SummerSounds: Music for Kids at the Hollywood Bowl,” now in its 44th season. In February 2013, the Hollywood Bowl was named Best Major Outdoor Concert Venue for the ninth year in a row at the 24th Annual Pollstar Concert Industry Awards. The Hollywood Bowl has become synonymous with summer in Southern California. http://www.HollywoodBowl.com
