Description

LA Weekly's Description

Frank Gehry's curving layers of shiny, silvery stainless-steel planks are more than just an architectural marvel. As designed by Yasuhisa Toyota, the sound in the main room is pristine and almost palpable. Part of downtown Los Angeles' Music Center, the hall features a massive concert organ built by Caspar Glatter-Gotz and can seat up to 2,265 people (seating is reserved). The home of the L.A. Philharmonic and the L.A. Master Chorale, Disney Hall also broadens its focus to encompass pop, jazz, R&B, electronic and country musicians like Dianne Reeves, Ryan Adams, Kraftwerk, John Legend, Trey Anastasio and Willie Nelson. The multilevel downtown complex includes a bookstore, a cafe and several bars. Parking is available in an adjoining underground lot.

Tips from foursquare

  • HISTORY on 02/13/13

    Home to the Los Angeles Philharmonic, this 3.6-acre complex designed by architect Frank Gehry was initially funded by Lillian Disney, widow of Walt Disney

  • Enjoy the L.A. Phil? You can also listen to their performances on KUSC-FM.

  • Los Angeles on 05/31/11

    Look for the "Rose for Lilly" designed by Gehry as a tribute to Lillian Disney, knowing that she loved Royal Deft porcelain. More than 200 vases and 8,000 tiles were used for the fountain.

  • LA Phil on 05/03/10

    Walk up the stairs at Grand & 2nd and take a stroll through the garden...it's a little oasis in the middle of the city.

    Find your way behind the hall to make a wish and toss a coin into "A Rose for Lilly" - the rose-shaped fountain made from Royal Delft Porcelain. For more DTLA parks, see "More info"!
