LA PHIL PBS SERIES
- By ARLENE WINNICK
Fear not Angelenos, the Hollywood Bowl summer concert series we all love and miss is back thanks to PBS stations nationwide. We were all saddened when the Bowl cancelled its 2020 season, the first time in the venue’s 98-year history, as concerts at the iconic theater are so much a part of summer nights in Los Angeles. Premiering Friday January 15, PBS stations will air IN CONCERT AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL featuring the ‘best of’ live performances from the past 10 years at the Bowl, hosted by LA Phil’s Music and Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel. “While it was heartbreaking not to be able to share music together…this past summer, having the opportunity to look back on these extraordinary concerts reminded us of everything that makes it so special and unique…We will return to the Bowl stronger than ever, but until then we can enjoy these magical moments.”
Each week you will be transported to a front-row seat (bring your own dinners) for performances by a star-studded lineup including Herbie Hancock, Misty Copeland, Katy Perry, Pink Martini, La Santa Cecilia and many more including the LA Philharmonic of course. Added Chief Creative Officer of KCET Juan Devis, “We are excited that this collaboration will help bring arts and culture to millions of viewers at home during a time when it’s needed most by our community.”
