Happy Birthday, "Hurricane Mama": Pulling Out All The Stops
Courtesy: LA Phil

In case you weren't aware, Walt Disney Concert Hall has a totally jaw-droppingly gorgeous organ that has some pretty adorable nicknames. One of those is "French fries"—maybe this one is courtesy of a little kid—and the other is "Hurricane Mama," bestowed upon the organ by composer Terry Riley. Hurricane Mama is reaching a milestone this year: her tenth birthday. Celebrate her sound with a series of concerts at the LA Phil that show off just how gorgeous she is. This concert will feature three rockstar organists playing every single one of Hurricane Mama's 6,134 pipes and music from Bach and Ravel to Williams and Scriabin.
