Visit Walt Disney Concert Hall
A stunning architectural sight - an outstanding music hall that will captivate you. Take the tour or check out one of the performances.
Designed by Frank Gehry and considered to be an architectural masterpiece, Walt Disney Concert Hall is a modern marvel and a Los Angeles icon. Completed in 2003, it is the newest of The Music Center’s four venues, and home to the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Los Angeles Master Chorale. Walt Disney Concert Hall is one of the most acoustically sophisticated concert halls in the world, providing both visual and aural intimacy for an unparalleled musical experience. The auditorium is configured in a “vineyard” style, which allows for seating on all four sides of the stage.
The Library of Congress/Ira Gershwin Gallery, housed inside Walt Disney Concert Hall, was designed by Hodgetts and Fung Design Associates and made possible by a generous gift from the Ira and Leonore Gershwin Trust for the Benefit of the Library of Congress. The gallery is situated on the second floor of Walt Disney Concert Hall and rotates its collection bi-annually. Visit the gallery when on a tour or when attending a performance inside the Concert Hall.
Although not a part of The Music Center, the Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater (REDCAT) is a multi-media arts center housed within the Walt Disney Concert Hall complex.
