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 weather was muggy summer weather. I wore a nice shirt/tie + jeans. No need for your LBD, but it is nice to be a little dressy in such a nice venue..Cal Phil: Sunday Afternoons at The Music Center's Walt Disney Concert Hall dress • Aug 04 2014 star this tip starred
Or after the afternnoon show, pop over to Little Tokyo, a few blocks down for a bunch of options. Ramen, Udon, even Mediterranean for reasonable prices.Cal Phil: Sunday Afternoons at The Music Center's Walt Disney Concert Hall dining • Aug 04 2014 star this tip starred

I wasn't a huge fan of the Riley concerto, but Cameron Carpenter could play whatever's the music equivalent of reading the phone book and it would be worth hearing (and watching). It's rare that such an obvious showman is also possessed of genuine talent and artistry. I'd never seen him perform before and was blown away.
"Naive and Sentimental Music" has been one of my favorite pieces since it was performed years ago by the Phil, and tonight's performance captivated me every bit as much as the piece did the first time. This was one of the best concerts I've been to in a long time.
Gordon: Sunshine of Your Love (U.S. premiere)
Riley: At the Royal Majestic (world premiere, LA Phil commission)
Adams: Naive and Sentimental Music
