LA Philharmonic on WUOT

Mondays from 8-10 p.m.

Each year since its founding in 1919, the Los Angeles Philharmonic has been hailed as Southern California's leading performing arts institution. Today, under the dynamic leadership of 29-year-old Venezuelan Gustavo Dudamel, who in 2009 became the orchestra's eleventh music director, the Philharmonic is still recognized as one of the world's outstanding orchestras. When he inaugurated his Philharmonic tenure at the Hollywood Bowl, a crowd of eighteen thousand people greeted him with a hollering and stamping pop-star ovation.
