The Cultural Heart of Los Angeles


Walt Disney Concert Hall

Across the street from The Promenade is the Music Center of Los Angeles County.

This is the glittering home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra and the Los Angeles Master Chorale.  The site is also home to REDCAT, the Roy and Edna Disney Cal Arts Theater.


Designed by Frank Gehry, the hall was completed in the fall of 2003.  With superb acoustics, it is a mecca for renowned performers from all over the world.


The third-floor, outdoor public garden of the Disney also offers a beautiful respite for the public and for theater-goers.

The Chandler’s classic design and large collection of art (most donated by Music Center patrons) make it a prestigious venue not only for the resident companies but visiting artists and community events, hosted by the Music Center.
