Walt Disney Concert Hall Virtual Tour (Part 3)

August 26, 2013

Your virtual tour in and around the home of the LA Phil, the distinctive Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, continues in Part 3 of this exclusive video series. Visit http://www.laphil.com to learn more about this amazing venue and its equally impressive orchestra. Architect Frank Gehry's now-famous WDCH opened in October 2003, instantly becoming an internationally recognized architectural landmark in downtown Los Angeles, California. Its visual sophistication is matched by its acoustic excellence and today it remains one of the most-loved venues for hearing classical music — music of many genres, in fact — in the entire world. The striking stainless-steel curves and hardwood-paneled main auditorium of this 3.6-acre complex offer state-of-the-art visuals and acoustics, embodying the unique energy and creative spirit of the city of Los Angeles and its orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic (also known as the LA Phil). Thanks to the vision and generosity of Lillian Disney, the Disney family, and both private and corporate donors, citizens of and visitors to Los Angeles enjoy the music of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Los Angeles Master Chorale — as well as visiting artists and orchestras from around the world — at this renowned venue. Go beyond this virtual tour and discover Walt Disney Concert Hall in person! Take a free self-guided audio tour narrated by John Lithgow with insights from architect Frank Gehry and former Music Director Esa-Pekka Salonen, as well as exclusive behind-the-scenes details from acoustician Yasuhisa Toyota, principal donor Lillian Disney's daughter Diane Disney Miller and others.
