The Los Angeles Philharmonic celebrates each of its season openings with extraordinary events that have become the city's proudest cultural traditions. Set in two iconic concert venues, these exciting parties raise significant operating funds which support the LA Phil and its education initiatives
Each year, the LA Phil kicks off the summer season at one of our nation's premier outdoor music venues with Opening Night at the Hollywood Bowl.
On Saturday, June 17th, 2017, guests will enjoy the ultimate Hollywood Bowl experience as Opening Night patrons. The summer gala includes an exclusive VIP pre-concert cocktail reception and a gourmet dinner, followed by a spectacular concert with fireworks under the stars.
This landmark benefit concert raises over $1 million for the Los Angeles Philharmonic's music education programs, which serve more than 150,000 youths, families and teachers every year.
On Tuesday, September 27th, 2016, the LA Phil Winter Gala kicked off the orchestra's winter season. The concert highlighted Gershwin and the Jazz Age. The glamorous black-tie celebration started with red-carpet arrivals, a pre-concert reception, prime seating for the concert, followed by dinner and dancing under the stars on Grand Avenue.
The LAPhil Gala raises more than $3.5 million for the LA Phil and its education programs, which serve more than 150,000 youths, families, and teachers every year.
