Experience the life of a Hollywood icon as the historic Alex Theatre hosts Loretta Young's 100th birthday gala. A paragon of grace and beauty, the Oscar- and Emmy-winning actress stole Clark Gable's heart and advanced women's status in entertainment by becoming the longest-running female host of a prime-time television show with The Loretta Young Show. Leading lady of such films as The Farmer's Daughter, The Bishop's Wife and The Stranger, Young shared the screen with such greats as Cary Grant, Orson Welles and Joseph Cotton. Young's son and daughter will be on hand, along with celebrity friends, to take the audience on a journey through the star's life. Movie clips, conversations, testimonies, dramatizations and an exclusive exhibit of Young's famous dresses and cherished possessions will bring this Hollywood legend to life. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
- “a new and exciting young conductor….Gardner, barely in his thirties, would seem to have it all--energy, ideas, personal dynamism and an urgent, welling musicianship.” --The Washington Post
“…shockingly difficult to play,” says John Adams of his Chamber Symphony, a fun-loving delight based on the tradition of American cartoons. The astonishing 32-year-old Edward Gardner takes on the challenge in his West Coast debut.
Revel in the artistry of LACO principal oboe Allan Vogel, “an oboe virtuoso with few equals and perhaps no superiors,” ( LA Times ) in Mozart’s only oboe concerto.
Also hear Britten’s Sinfonietta and Beethoven’s energetic Symphony No. 8.
