Celebrate LA!: LA Phil 100 x CicLAvia is presented in partnership with CicLAvia and Community Arts Resources (CARS), to bring the LA Phil out of its venues and into the streets, as a gift to the city and as a showcase of Los Angeles’ creative spirit. The eight-mile long street party will feature 1,800 performers – musicians, dancers, and visual artists, the vast majority of which are from L.A. – with live shows and fun-filled activities throughout the entire route.
This unprecedented community event will transform eight miles of city streets into an auto-free zone where all are welcome to walk, run, skate, scoot, bike, and wander. It has no starting or ending point, and participants can join in anywhere they like. Any form of non-motorized transportation can be utilized, which includes walking, biking, wheelchairs, skateboards, and strollers. All ages are encouraged to attend.
A special Celebrate LA! app has been created to help navigate the event: create a personalized schedule, set reminders for artist performances, find activities and performances along the route, and listen to the LA Phil’s specially curated playlist. The app is available now at:
LA Phil 100:
In its Centennial year (September 2018 through October 2019), the LA Phil is inviting people from Los Angeles and around the world to join them in envisioning a future that music can help create. Major initiatives include presenting the orchestra’s most ambitious artistic season to date, featuring over 50 commissioned works and the LA Phil’s largest roster of artistic collaborations; investing in the future of young people by creating a permanent YOLA center, The Judith and Thomas L. Beckmen YOLA Center @ Inglewood, designed by Frank Gehry; establishing the LA Phil Resident Fellows Program, which will provide musicians representing or serving historically underrepresented populations opportunities for professional advancement; welcoming all of Los Angeles to Celebrate LA!: LA Phil 100 x CicLAvia, a free, massive, street festival, featuring performances by 1,800 musicians, dancers and visual artists, stretching from Grand Avenue in front of Walt Disney Concert Hall all the way to the Hollywood Bowl, and concluding with LA Phil 100 at the Bowl, a free concert at the Hollywood Bowl; the “100 for the 100th: Be Our Guest” free ticket initiative, which will invite thousands of new listeners into Walt Disney Concert Hall; and a $500 Million Centennial Campaign to fund the future.
