Walt Disney Concert Hall

Time Out says

As the $274-million crown jewel of the LA Music Center, Disney Hall opened in 2003 to rave reviews. The novelty hasn't yet worn off: both inside and out, this is a terrific venue. Designed by Frank Gehry, the hall features a 2,265-capacity auditorium with an open platform stage. Chief acoustician Yasuhisa Toyota combined the best aspects of orchestral halls in Tokyo, Berlin, Amsterdam and Boston in a bid to provide aural warmth and clarity; the result of his endeavors is a virtually perfect acoustic that works almost as well for amplified events as for orchestral performances. The hall is the home of the LA Philharmonic and the LA Master Chorale, but the schedule is surprisingly varied throughout the year. The complex also includes the 250-seat Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theatre, a gallery and a roof garden. For tours of the building, call 213-972-4399, or see online for a schedule.

What’s on

Power to the People!

It’s been a mainstay of protest signs, songs and chants, but this spring the “power to the people” refrain will fill the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Gustavo Dudamel and Herbie Hancock are once again bringing together musicians, artists and activists for a series of shows between May 29 and June 9 that celebrate solidarity and humanitarian spirit. Programs include reimagined traditional hymns from Nathaniel Gumbs, a performance by Bryonn Bain at the Skirball, an Afro-American symphony and poetry at Disney Hall and a conversation with Saul Williams at the CAAM. The centerpiece performance at Disney Hall includes appearances from Devendra Banhart, Mon Laferte, Rodrigo Amarante and more.
