Los Angeles, September 10, 2014 – Dedicated to empowering audiences to have fulfilling and connected concert experiences, the LA Phil is excited to premiere a new Friday concert series at Walt Disney Concert Hall for the 2014/15 season: Inside the Music with Brian Lauritzen. This new series is a ticket to a guided journey through four diverse orchestral concerts and an invitation to learn about the music, discover ways it intersects with our lives, and experience concerts in a whole new way. Award-winning KUSC classical radio personality and modern music journalist Brian Lauritzen hosts this five-part experience in concert-going.
Each content-rich element of the series can stand alone or be combined, giving patrons a choice in how they connect to the music, composers, artists, collaborators, and instruments that make each concert exceptional.
