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

This was a birthday gift to my friend Wendy. We went with a dear friend and all agreed that it was a special evening. The 300 person strong Los Angeles Choir was joined by members of Gay Men's choirs from San Francisco and 2 or 3 other cities. Can you imagine 500 hundred voices in a tribute to Harvey Milk. Marvelous!!!!

This was probably the most amazing evening I have spent. Act 1 was pure chorale, while Act 2 incorporated theatrical aspects that any breathing human being could identify with. Bravo to LA, SF, DVR, and all the participants from other choruses...continued

About the Ticket Supplier: Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles
Hailed by the LA Times as “one of the last important links to a glorious tradition in music,” Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles has been a notable part of Southern California for almost thirty-five years. Formed in 1979 as a completely volunteer effort of 99 men, GMCLA has doubled in size, gained professional artistic and administrative staff, toured internationally, released fifteen compact discs, and appeared with numerous stage, film, and television celebrities like Lily Tomlin, Melissa Manchester, Jerry Herman, Valarie Pettiford and LeAnn Rimes.
Among the many “firsts” of this dynamic arts organization, GMCLA was the first gay ensemble to perform for a sitting U.S. President (both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama); the first openly gay performers to be broadcast over Russian television in 1999; the first gay chorus to tour central Europe (1991) and South America (2006), created the original musical “It Gets Better”to combat anti-LGBT bullying (currently on a U.S. tour), and recently performed at the Academy Awards.
In addition to their vocal excellence, GMCLA wows audiences with their uniquely theatrical and inventive productions, performing three major concerts each season. They bring their music education program, Alive Music Project, to high school students across Los Angeles to build bridges between all communities by sharing music and their personal stories. GMCLA sings for a future free from homophobia and discrimination of all kinds.
