This is What’s On Tap for Next Season at Walt Disney Concert Hall

Posted by

Gustavo Dudamel has said that Los Angeles is “…like an orchestra: so many different people, sounds, cultures, and histories, all coming together in a beautiful harmony of life.” With last week’s announcement of the 2024-25 season at Walt Disney Concert Hall, we see Dudamel’s vision of L.A. come to life with a lineup of programming that underscores the vibrancy, diversity, and creativity of a city unlike any other in the world.

The schedule opens on October 1 with the LA Phil Gala Concert: Dudamel & Lang Lang, featuring Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 and Ginastera’s Estancia. Two days later, the Concert Hall transforms into Shakespeare’s magical forest when the LA Phil and Los Angeles Master Chorale join forces to perform Mendelssohn’s whimsical incidental music from A Midsummer Night’s Dream (October 3 and 4).

From there, the action really kicks into high gear. There’s the return of the John Williams Spotlight series (October 25-27) with From Mexico to Hollywood: Golden Age of Cinema, a trio of Día de los Muertos celebrations (November 1-3) as part of Pan-American Music Initiative, and the day-long Noon to Midnight new music festival (November 16) curated by Ellen Reid, featuring the world premiere of Doug Aitken’s Lightscape with the Los Angeles Master Chorale, all as part of the Getty’s PST ART: Art & Science Collide initiative.

As winter flows to spring you’ll find the annual Deck The Hall holiday concert series sprinkled throughout the month of December and the Mahler Grooves Festival (starting in February) during which Dudamel will head 11 performances in all, including the first performances of Symphony No. 7 with the LA Phil, Des Knaben Wunderhorn and Alma Mahler’s Five Songs.

Throughout the season you’ll find a who’s who of guest conductors and performers, including Teddy Abrams, Ryan Bancroft, Gustavo Gimeno, Sarah Hicks, Cody Fry, Herbie Hancock, Samara Joy, Wynonna Judd, Yo-Yo Ma, and many more.

The 24-25 lineup wraps with LA Phil’s first-ever Seoul Festival, curated by South Korean composer Unsuk Chin, features fast-rising Korean performing talent, distinct composer voices and broad-reaching culture, all showcasing South Korea’s impact on the modern American musical landscape across genres from K-pop to Classical.
