It was a cultural day again today.
We visited 4 concert halls.
The Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown Los Angeles, is the fourth hall of the Los Angeles Music Center. It seats 2,265 people and serves (among other purposes) as the home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestra and the Los Angeles Master Chorale.
Lillian Disney made an initial gift in 1987 to build a performance venue as a gift to the people of Los Angeles and a tribute to Walt Disney's devotion to the arts and to the city.
The Frank Gehry-designed building opened on October 24, 2003. Both the architecture by Frank Gehry and the acoustics of the concert hall (designed by Yasuhisa Toyota) were praised in contrast to its predecessor, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.
I just want to touch everything, the entire Concert Hall is textural. I've attended a lecture and a concert there and it was a once in a lifetime experience.
Keith hadn't visited before so it was nice to see it through his eyes too.
Some of these photos were taken about 8 months ago… and some today.
When you walk into the hall you feel warm, comfortable and cocooned.
But in contrast we will attend a concert at the Hollywood Bowl with Brad Paisley and Scotty McCrerry tomorrow night…. A culture of the most exciting genre…. New country. Yippee.
I love classical and new country music, not necessarily in that order… it depends on the day.
