The iconic Walt Disney Hall is celebrating its 10th Anniversary and Los Angeles Free Concerts invites you to a live outdoor simulcast of the Disney Hall concert at Grand Park. 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. We will have one of our famous Picnic Meet & Greets before the concert. You are also welcome to join us after the concert for a Cocktail Party Meet & Greet at posh Noe Lounge, just a couple blocks away. RSVP here.

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.

PICNIC MEET & GREET

The best part of attending a concert in the park is the picnic. This is where you'll make new friends and say "Hi" to old ones. A great way to meet someone is to offer them something! So... bring something to share! Either a refreshing beverage or some finger eats such as charcuterie, salumi, cheeses, fresh produce such as grapes, dried fruits such as dates or nuts, olives, bread--foods that are easy to eat without utensils. Bring a low profile beach chair (not a lawn chair), jacket and a flashlight.

    Hello! Before I say yes... I'd like to know what time the opera starts and finish please? Does anyone know? Thanks!

    September 27, 2013

      According to the LA Phil website, the concert itself starts at 4pm. There's no actual opera performance, but they will start with the overture to "Marriage of Figaro" before playing Tchaikovsky's 2nd Symphony and the Marquez piece. That adds up to only about 50 minutes of music, but I'm sure there will be plenty of filler, given the occasion.

  • Lionel

    ATTENTION: we URGENTLY need volunteers to arrive at 2:45 to help Pamela save space for this humongous group and get the party started early! Bring low profile beach chairs. If you bring a high back lawn chair you will be asked to collapse it. No alcohol.

    You are all invited to the cocktail After Party at Noe. rsvp here (no ticket needed) http://www.meetup.com/losangelesfreeconcerts/events/138836012/

      September 23, 2013

      September 23, 2013

  • Simone R.

    Please tell me where were we mean to obtain tickets? I'm really disappointed that now although I RSVP I will not be able to attend due to tickets being sold out! I had also invited guests and now have to mention that we cannot go. Is there anything else I should be aware of red the after party?

    • Lionel

      This is not the concert in Disney Hall. This is the SIMULCAST on the huge screen in the park across the street.

      September 9, 2013

  • Lionel

    ATTENTION: this is the concert at GRAND PARK--not Disney Hall. It is an outdoor picnic. Do not rsvp for both.

    September 9, 2013

  • Diane

    Wish I could be there.
