Gustavo Dudamel’s inaugural concert with LA Phil on October 3 to be webcast live
The Los Angeles Philharmonic will host a free, live HD webcast of ¡Bienvenido Gustavo!, a Target® Free Community Concert at the Hollywood Bowl, on October 3 at 4pm PDT. ¡Bienvenido Gustavo! marks Gustavo Dudamel’s inaugural performance as Music Director of the LA Philharmonic and is the first time a performance has been webcast from the Hollywood Bowl. The webcast will be available to watch live on the LA Phil website, and all individual performances from the concert will be available for on-demand viewing for 24 hours beginning at 10am PDT on Sunday, October 4.
The first half of the ¡Bienvenido Gustavo! program showcases artists from varied genres and generations, featuring young LA-based ensembles, rising stars, and established names who have served as role models for the next generation of musicians in their communities. These performances are followed by the YOLA Expo Center Youth Orchestra, led by Gustavo in his first public appearance with the ensemble, performing an arrangement of Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy.” The concert culminates in the LA Phil’s performance of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, conducted by Dudamel, featuring a stellar solo quartet and a congregation of choruses from across Los Angeles.
