#OnThisDay in 1988, the Music Made in LA Festival of Music Made in L.A. came to a close with a program devoted to the music of Schoenberg and Stravinsky. As Peter Heyworth wrote in the festival’s program book, during the period in which both composers lived in Los Angeles, “L.A. was the home of a greater concentration of musical talent than existed in any other city at that time.” Incredibly, despite both living in Los Angeles for a decade, these two 20th Century masters only met once. #LAPhil100
#OnThisDay in 1988, Frank Gehry was announced as the architect of what would become Walt Disney Concert Hall, winning the design competition with this model above. #LAPhil100

#OnThisDay in 1964, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion hosted its first concert. Opening night featured Zubin Mehta conducting the LA Phil in selections from Beethoven, Strauss, William Schuman, and Respighi for a capacity crowd of 3,250 people, including Governor Pat Brown and Bernice Layne Brown, County Supervisor Kenneth Hahn, Archbishop of Los Angeles Cardinal James Francis McIntyre, and celebrities including Rock Hudson, Bob Hope, and Rosalind Russell. From this night until the opening of Walt Disney Concert Hall in 2003, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion would be the LA Phil’s home venue. #LAPhil100
