The iconic Walt Disney Hall is celebrating its 10th Anniversary and Los Angeles Free Concerts invites you to a rare free concert at Disney Hall. Performing side-by-side for the first time, the Los Angeles Philharmonic and YOLA (Youth Orchestra Los Angeles) will be conducted by Gustavo Dudamel. This unique concert also features legendary pianist Herbie Hancock and other special guests. This is a ticketed event and we will not be able to sit together a group, but we will gather after the concert for a Cocktail Party Meet & Greet at posh Noe Lounge, just a couple blocks away.

In October 2003, Walt Disney Concert Hall burst upon the scene as an architectural masterpiece and acoustical marvel, forever changing the musical landscape of Los Angeles. In this extraordinary space, where your experience of live music has become richer, more powerful and infinitely more involving, the Los Angeles Philharmonic has soared to new heights. The music of our time is heard without compromise; the classics become new with unexpected detail. Now, a decade on, we celebrate this iconic Hall for continuing to nurture us with incomparable and unforgettable musical experiences.

    I had an amazing time!! What a privilege it was. THANK YOU, Lionel! I sat with some folks from Meetup in the Orchestra View section. I enjoyed watching Rafael, but both conductors were awesome.

    Though we somehow missed seeing Lionel and fellow Meet-up attendees beforehand, we very much enjoyed the performances. We found it so inspiring that the teens of YOLA are from the most gang-ridden, rough areas of L.A. - South Central and Rampart. And here they were, participating in a concert led by Gustavo Dudamel and playing side-by-side with their senior counterparts of the L.A. Philharmonic. It was only fitting that this, my first time inside the gorgeous Walt Disney Concert Hall, was in celebration of its 10th Anniversary. Thank you, Lionel, for arranging this. I have attached some pictures, especially for those of you who tuned in from Grand Park. See ya next time!

    I loved all especially Bach's Toccata. I liked full blast of organ sound. I was also impressed with young musicians. I'm sure they had amazing experience to play with LA Philharmonic in Walt Disney Concert Hall. I enjoyed all of the program. Thank you, Lionel for researching and organizing it.

    It was amazing...from where I was sitting, I could see Gustavo's face and how he was leading the orchestra. I think someone like him should be the president of the U.S.!!! :D

    ** Heads-Up on Parking ** Consider taking public transit! I was at Disney Hall today (Sat.) and found out there will be a massive amount of traffic on Sunday in the area -- namely, a triathalon + four nearby venues all have events. My take is that parking will be limited and expensive. Go Metro, baby!

    September 28, 2013

  • Lety

    Hi Noel. Yes, I would like the ticket!

    September 28, 2013

  • Lionel

    ATTENTION: you must have a printed ticket from the LA Phil to enter Disney Hall. My tix have a BARCODE. A "meetup ticket" will not work. A rsvp here will not work.

    September 27, 2013

  • Lionel

    ATTENTION: there are extra tickets to this event and members are notified in the order they rsvped. Strangely members are not responding. If you receive an email about "extra ticket" you need to respond asap.

      September 22, 2013

    • Lionel

      I checked the "send mail" button and it's working fine. Maybe there's a problem with your browser. Of course you can attend the cocktail party. It's open to all members.

    Lionel: thanks so much for staying on top of this. Can you let the other members know WHEN CALLING IN, you will have to ASK THE FOLKS OVER THE PHONE TO DOUBLE CHECK TICKET AVAILABILITY!! I was told TWICE there were no tix when I called just now-- but I insisted that they double check and I got TWO. Please don't take no for an answer. THERE ARE STILL

    1 · September 22, 2013

  • Lionel

    ATTENTION MORE TIX RELEASED CALL[masked] VERY LIMITED AVAILABILITY

  • Michelle

    Hi Lionel,

    Please put me on the wait list. Thank you!

    September 15, 2013

  • Lionel

    Some members have extra tix and they are willing to share so more members can attend. Thank you. The fairest method of distribution is to use the date and time that you rsvped Yes. The distribution will take place on 9/23/13. The Phil is also performing Figaro on 9/26/13 with Peter and the Wolf at Wilshire United.

    The website is not allowing me to order ticket.

  • Al

    Thank you Lionel for all the time and effort you have given to this wonderful event. Lisa is right I am sure many are disappointed no fault to you. Communication and technology at times creates chaos and disappointment.

    If anyone has an extra ticket, please let me know.

    September 8, 2013

  • Lisa

    Let's face it...when the marriage of Figuero is free at Disney hall...we all expected that these modes would be bombarded and difficult to get through. Even if u went to the box office there was no telling whether you had a better chance. It's a very well known opera for FREE at the Disney hall!

    1 · September 7, 2013

  • Luis C.

    I though the organizer would get the tickets but was wrong,,,, if anyone has 2 extra tickets please let me know otherwise have fun guys....

    September 7, 2013

  • alan

    what a joke. I was online at 12 also and it already was sold out. Who arranged this fiasco? I am very disappointed

    September 7, 2013

  • Al

    So sorry many of u had trouble. I'm surprised I got through. I might have an extra ticket. I'll post if so.

    September 7, 2013

  • Lionel

    I tried calling box office repeatedly and websites until 12:30--gave up and calked ticketmaster. Was on hold for 10 min and somehow got tix.

    September 7, 2013

    • Michiko

      Which section did you get, Lionel? Although this is a General Admission, does having a ticket mean I definitely have a seat if I enter by 4pm?

      September 7, 2013

  • Lyn G.

    Couldn't get tickets : (.

    September 7, 2013

  • Connie

    Anybody have a extra ticket let me know.

    September 7, 2013

  • Susan

    Would love to go,but tix look like they're now sold out?

    September 7, 2013

    • Lionel

      Someone may have an extra ticket. Or you can go to the outdoor simulcast or the afterparty or both.

      September 7, 2013

  • Lionel

    Just heard from Noe--the Cocktail Party is a GO! We'll start at 6:30; I'll post the event in day or so. It will be a seperate rsvp.
