Start getting excited for our new Maestro!

Gustavo Dudamel: a small collection of reading material....
Happy to report that Franz and Giovanni will be at the inaugural concert October 3rd at the Hollywood Bowl, a community music celebration curated by John Willams and Herbie Hancock, featuring Beethoven's 9th Symphony as the finale with LA Phil, LA Master Chorale, and several community choruses joining forces.... exciting!

El Sistema - the Venezuelan state foundation of community music schools, of which Dudamel is a part of and hopes to bring in some form to Los Angeles

The LA Phil's pretty amped, too.
