Los Angeles Philharmonic to Return to Disney Hall on October 9

The orchestra's 2021/22 season features a wide range of music to make up for a nineteen-month absence


For the first time in 579 days, the Los Angeles Philharmonic and its Music Director Gustavo Dudamel will return to Disney Hall for live performances.

The 2021/22 season, which is set to take place entirely in-person, begins with the LA Phil Homecoming Concert & Gala. This performance will feature soloists vocalist Cynthia Erivo and pianist Seong-Jin Cho, as well as a premiere performance of the newly-commissioned Kauyumari by Gabriela Ortiz.

Ortiz's presence will continue to be felt throughout the season, as she is this year's curator of the Pan-American Music Initiative (PAMI). The PAMI will run across multiple seasons, and will ensure that music from across the Americas finds its way into the orchestra's repertoire.

Alongside the programming of standard repertoire such as Strauss's Four Last Songs, Schoenberg's Verklärte Nacht, and all three of Stravinsky's major ballet scores (Petrushka, The Firebird, and The Rite of Spring), the orchestra will also tackle a range of new works that speak to the current cultural climate.

A new piece by Thomas Adès, Dante, will be played as part of the Gen X festival. The season's final concert, Power to the People, will pair a new work by Angélica Negrón with William Grant Still's Symphony No. 1, “Afro-American.”

While the return to live performances gives a sense of normality, the orchestra has implemented protocols to maintain safety. All audience members must provide proof of full vaccination, with staff and artists subject to the same requirement. Additionally, everyone in the hall will be required to wear masks in line with guidance from the LA County Department of Public Health.
