LA Phil kicks off its centennial season
The LA Phil kicks off its highly anticipated centennial season with a California-themed opening-night concert and gala—featuring a program of works by Golden State greats such as John Adams and Frank Zappa—on Sept. 27. Local artist Refik Anadol will then transform the Walt Disney Concert Hall’s stainless steel facade with mesmerizing nightly projections (Sept. 28-Oct. 6) integrating archival media from the orchestra’s 100-year history. Finally, an all-day street festival on Sept. 30—organized with CicLAvia and Community Arts Resources—will feature hundreds of performers across an 8-mile route, from Downtown Los Angeles to the Hollywood Bowl, culminating in a free concert helmed by conductor Gustavo Dudamel. laphil.com.
