The moment Walt Disney Concert Hall opened its doors, it became a sensational platform for classical, jazz and world music. The extraordinary steel architecture and fantastic sound equipment make it one of Los Angeles’s top icons and an acclaimed cultural venue. To explore this hall, you can walk around by yourself or join the 60-minute, free docent-guided tour to learn about the entire campus’ history, concerts held and related information.
The LA Philharmonic plays over 250 concerts annually at this venue since the last 100 years. Walt Disney Concert Hall’s main auditorium is built in acoustic style to resemble the hull of a boat, ensuring sound inflow from every direction to the audience. Designed unconventionally to dazzle spectators, the Pipe Organ is the most famous architectural marvel made with enormous, bent wooden pipes. It is placed strategically close to the ceiling which is built with Douglas fir. The campus also has a seperate amphitheater with 300 seats for children’s shows. You can enjoy dining and crafted drinks at the Founders Room which features a spacious lounge and cafe. During occasions like 4th of July and Halloween, the 3,000 square meters of garden area are open for exhibitions where you can sink into the world of music and art.
