Los Angeles, CA (August 3, 2016) - Ten Los Angeles Philharmonic concerts from the current Hollywood Bowl season will be broadcast on Classical KUSC's SoCal Sunday Night series, the station's weekly spotlight on local concerts, beginning Sunday, August 7 at 7:00 PM. This is the tenth year of the orchestra's summer partnership with Southern California's listener-sponsored classical music radio station.
The concerts are recorded live on select nights at the Hollywood Bowl featuring the LA Phil with a superb roster of artists and conductors. Hosted and produced by KUSC's Brian Lauritzen, the programs air weekly at 7:00 PM on Sundays from August 7 through October 9, 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 93.7 KDB in Santa Barbara.

The project is made possible through the support of the Office of Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl.

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 plays host to the finest artists from all genres of music. It remains one of the best deals anywhere in Los Angeles; to this day, $1 buys a seat at the top of the Bowl for many classical and jazz offerings. The venue offers something for everyone, from its sizzling summer evening concerts to the daytime arts festival for children, "SummerSounds: World Music for Kids at the Hollywood Bowl." In February 2016, the Hollywood Bowl was named Best Major Outdoor Concert Venue for the twelfth year in a row at the 27th Annual Pollstar Concert Industry Awards. For millions of music lovers across Southern California, the Hollywood Bowl is synonymous with summer. www.HollywoodBowl.com
