Starting next January, 9th the Los Angeles Philharmonic will join The Philadelphia Orchestra, the Berlin Philharmonic and the Metropolitan Opera, which pioneer this kind of programs 5 years ago and is becoming very successful at it, in their efforts to make their programs accessible to anyone around the country and sometimes even to the globe.
The first concert will be conducted by the LA Phil Music Director Gustavo Dudamel and will present mezzo-soprano Kelley O’Connor. The program will include works Slonimsky’s Earbox, by John Adams, Symphony No. 1, “Jeremiah” by Leonard Bernstein and Symphony No. 7 by L. van Beethoven.
