ABOUT THE LA PHIL
LA Phil 100:
Celebrating 100 years of outstanding musical achievements and looking ahead toward the next century of artistic innovation, the Los Angeles Philharmonic is presenting its Centennial season, LA Phil 100, as a showcase for the extraordinary range of the LA Phil’s artistry and an invitation for everyone to join in envisioning a future that music can help create.
In addition to featuring the premieres of more than 50 commissioned works and presenting the LA Phil’s largest roster of artistic collaborations, LA Phil 100 incorporates major initiatives developed to invest in the future of young people and ensure that people from all the communities of Los Angeles are embraced. These initiatives include creating a permanent YOLA center, The Judith and Thomas L. Beckmen YOLA Center at Inglewood, designed by Frank Gehry; establishing the LA Phil Resident Fellows Program, which will provide musicians representing or serving historically underrepresented populations with opportunities for professional advancement; inaugurating the “100 for the 100: Be Our Guest” Free Ticket Initiative, which invites thousands of new listeners into Walt Disney Concert Hall; and undertaking a $500 Million Centennial Campaign to fund the future.
The Los Angeles Philharmonic Association, under the vibrant leadership of Music & Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel, presents an inspiring array of music from all genres – orchestral, chamber, and Baroque music, organ and celebrity recitals, new music, jazz, world music, and pop – at two of L.A.’s iconic venues, Walt Disney Concert Hall (laphil.com) and the Hollywood Bowl (hollywoodbowl.com). The LA Phil’s season at Walt Disney Concert Hall extends from September to June, and at the Hollywood Bowl throughout the summer. With the preeminent Los Angeles Philharmonic at the foundation of its offerings, the LA Phil aims to enrich and transform lives through music, with a robust mix of artistic, learning, and community programs.
