Gustavo Dudamel & YOLA to perform at Pepsi Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show
Youth Orchestra Los Angeles (YOLA), led by LA Phil Music & Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel, will perform during the Pepsi Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show on Sunday, February 7 on CBS.
“This is a wonderful honor and an extraordinary showcase for YOLA, as well as a tribute to youth orchestras worldwide,” said Gustavo. “When we play, it will be for the youth of the world so they can be inspired to create both a better life for themselves and a better future.”
The show will echo elements of the NFL's On the Fifty campaign – honoring the past, recognizing the present and looking ahead to the next 50 years. Global superstars and winners of seven Grammy Awards Coldplay will perform, among other acts.
The Pepsi Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show is an NFL Network Production and will be executive produced by Ricky Kirshner and directed by Hamish Hamilton. For more information about Super Bowl 50, visit SuperBowl.com or follow #SB50.
