Such a pleasure to have the incredible @snarkypuppy in the house! I have been wanting to play with this group since I first heard GroundUp back in 2015. Not only is it a true honor and privilege to play with @nwerthy and @jtondrums, but we also have Alex Acuna and Brian Kilgore helping us out with some hand percussion. Killer team and it’s easily going to be one of the best concerts of the year. #laphil #laphil100 #snarkypuppy #percussion #drums #deepgroove #bucketlist
An amazing, glorious, moving night. Ellington, Still, and Gershwin, featuring some beautiful piano solos, a riveting drum solo and duet, a wonderful clarinetist, and an astonishing assortment of brass helped make for a great night. A great tribute to how African Americans have made this country great simply by their musical influence alone #laphil #laphil100 #williamgrantstill #gershwin ♥️ #blackhistorymonth
This winter, the LA Phil celebrates its 100th season by inviting friends to L.A. to help celebrate the artistic spirit and virtuosity inspired by the city they call home. GMM is honored to work with the LA Phil to create & install #CityLightPoleBanners for the season. #laphil100 #lightpolebanners #lastreets #la
#OnThisDay, we celebrate love in its many forms. Lillian Disney wanted to build a concert hall as a tribute to her husband Walt and his love for music, the arts, and Los Angeles. Her initial financial gift made Walt Disney Concert Hall possible, and changed the landscape of Downtown Los Angeles. #LAPhil100

One of the things I love the most in life is watching this man conduct. His passion for the music is so magnificent. We truly are very lucky to have Gustavo Dudamel here! #laphil100 #buddahpassion #wdch
Day 40 ✏️💪🏻
Designed by Frank Gehry in the 1980’s. Construction was finished in 2003. The same year that “bring me to life” by Evanescence came out. So 2003 was a good year.
#OnThisDay in 1961, Henry Lewis led the Los Angeles Philharmonic for the first time. Ten years prior, as a bassist, he became the first African-American member of the orchestra, and rose through the organization, becoming Zubin Mehta’s associate conductor in 1961. Under his lead on this special evening, the orchestra performed pieces by Verdi, Beethoven, and Dvořák at Philharmonic Hall. #LAPhil100
#OnThisDay in 1983, former Los Angeles Philharmonic Music Director Alfred Wallenstein died in New York City. Wallenstein was our fifth music director, and the first to be born in the United States. A former cellist in the orchestra, he took the LA Phil in its first-ever world tour, visiting Tokyo, Okinawa, Manila, Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Ho Chi Minh City (then Saigon), Hong Kong, Taipei, and more for a staggering 58-concert run. Following his tenure in Los Angeles, he became a perennial guest conductor throughout the US, and served as an instructor at the Peabody Institute and Juilliard for a number of years. When he left the LA Phil, the Los Angeles Times’ Albert Goldberg wrote, “The Wallenstein regime was a fruitful and distinguished era for the Los Angeles Philharmonic … [that] established the Orchestra as one of our foremost civic institutions.” We remember his life and remarkable contributions to the history of the LA Phil today. #LAPhil100
2.6.19 LA Phil's Chinese New Year concert with Ray Chen (violin) conducted by Elim Chan. Every time I see the LA Phil perform, I'm in such awe and remember how much I enjoy orchestra music. It's always great to see Asian talent highlighted! Ray Chen was amazing. And it's very exciting to see Asian Females like Elim Chan and Du Yun (who premiered her work Thirst at this performance) and their remarkable talents featured. .

We start by seeing something with new eyes, in a fresh way. Then we imagine what it would look like if we added something new to it. Today, let me joyfully embrace the creative process with all its joy and frustration.

Hoy día fue un día inolvidable, más feliz imposible! Después de tanto soñarlo, al fin pude aplaudir a aquel gran compositor y director que tanto he admirado siempre, nada más ni nada menos que luego de un concierto tributo a él dirigido por otro ser que no tiene palabras para describirlo, en un lugar que siempre soñé con conocer un día y que nunca creí que llegaría tan pronto❤️ infinitamente agradecida
