In Concert at the Hollywood Bowl

Fri, 01/15/2021 - 9:00pm - 10:00pm

On May 13, the 2020 season of the In Concert at the Hollywood Bowl, a weekly music series produced in partnership between KCET and the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association, was officially cancelled for the first time in its 98-year history due to COVID-19. The series, which aired in Southern California earlier this summer, features iconic moments from the LA Phil archives at the Hollywood Bowl. Six episodes featuring the “best of” live performances from the past 10 years at the Bowl’s Summer Concert Series will be hosted by LA Phil’s Music and Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel. In Concert at the Hollywood Bowl premieres Friday, January 15, 2021 at 9 p.m. on WXXI-TV.

The premiere episode, Musicals and the Movies, features Kristin Chenoweth with Kevin Stites and the LA Phil, Audra McDonald with Bramwell Tovey and the LA Phil, Sutton Foster with Brian Stokes Mitchell, Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Phil.

LA Phil’s Music and Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel said, "While it was heartbreaking not to be able to share music together at the Hollywood Bowl this past Summer, having the opportunity to look back on these extraordinary concerts reminded us of everything that makes it so special and unique. These beautifully-crafted programs take us across genres and generations, from celebrations of Mexico and Hispanic Heritage Month to some of the most legendary Jazz, Pop, Broadway, and Classical artists, giving once-in-a-lifetime performances. We will return to the Bowl stronger than ever, but until then we can enjoy these magical moments."
