Walt Disney Concert Hall plays host to a selection of holiday concerts that are as unique as the world-famous building's facade. First up, there's The Blind Boys of Alabama belting out rousing and spiritual renditions of Christmas carols. A little further into the season, the exquisite singers of Chanticleer share their repertoire, ranging from Medieval/Renaissance to contemporary. And for a finale with a bang, celebrate New Years Eve with Sergio Mendes and Sheila E., plus Brazilian dancers, at Carnival at the Hall. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Life and death, light and dark: Spanish conductor Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos pairs Beethoven’s ebullient Eighth Symphony with Falla’s gritty tale of a woman wronged. Light on its feet, the Eighth is full of abstract dance gestures, while Falla drew on Spanish traditional song and dance for his two-act opera.
