The National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America makes its Walt Disney Concert Hall debut. Each summer, Carnegie Hall's Weill Music Institute brings together 120 of the brightest young players from across the country to take part in a two-week training residency with leading orchestra musicians. Then these remarkable teenagers embark on a tour to some of the great music capitals of the world. For this tour, David Robertson conducts an electrifying program that begins with Bernstein's Symphonic Dances from West Side Story, a great American classic that pulses with fiery rhythms. The orchestra is joined by Gil Shaham for Britten's intense and virtuosic Violin Concerto. Samuel Carl Adams' innovative style is on vivid display in a special new work commissioned by Carnegie Hall. The program wraps up with perennial favorite Pictures at an Exhibition by Mussorgsky. Learn More

The seats were better than I had expected and the music sublime.
The Walt Disney Concert Hall is one of the great performance venues in the world. Worth every penny! I hope that Goldstar can get access to some of the better level seating to offer to members in the near future.
I would definitely partake!

We had a great time overall. Having said that, LA Phil had to change the program due to the illness of the conductor as well as the soloist. We do understand that these things happen, but we should have been informed of these changes (and given an...continued
Dec. 3: Green Umbrella Presents
L.A. Philharmonic Creative Chair John Adams showcases the imaginative breadth of the next generation of L.A. creators. Includes the world premiere of a new piece by experimental artist/singer Julia Holter.
*Dec. 5 & 7: Scheherezade
- A solo violin is the voice of Scheherazade as she calms the Sultan’s menacing brass fanfares in Rimsky-Korsakov’s colorful epic. “All I had desired was that the hearer, if he liked my piece as symphonic music, should carry away the impression that this is beyond doubt an oriental narrative of some numerous and varied fairy-tale wonders and not merely four pieces played one after the other,” the composer wrote.
*Jan. 10-12: “New World” Symphony with Eschenbach
- When Dvořák’s Ninth was premiered at Carnegie Hall, there was wild cheering after each movement. To this day, it remains one of the most popular symphonies in the repertoire. With its memorable melodies, vigorous rhythms, and perfectly balanced moments of drama and repose, it’s easy to hear why.
*Jan. 31-Feb. 1: Hilary Hahn
- Always a welcome presence, the acclaimed violinist Hahn brings a relative rarity this time with her performance of Carl Nielsen’s violin concerto, which premiered in 1912.
*Feb. 5: Venice Baroque Orchestra
- French countertenor Philippe Jaroussky, celebrated for his virtuosic coloratura technique, is quickly becoming known for his interpretations of the Neapolitan opera composer – and teacher of Haydn – Nicola Porpora: check out Youtube to share the enthusiasm.
*Mar. 9: Ann Elise Smoot
- Winner of the 1998 National Young Artists Competition of The American Guild of Organists, renowned organist Smoot has made critically acclaimed recordings at the Washington National Cathedral and on the two historic Silbermann organs in Alsace, France.
*Mar. 22: Hugh Masekela 75th Birthday Celebration
- World-renowned trumpeter ‘bra’ Hugh Masekela is the essence of South African music. A phenomenal grace and power imbue his music, which ranges from funky township grooves to cooking jazz, soul and beyond. Special guests and friends join him for this birthday concert, a celebration of joyous and life-affirming proportions.
