Walt Disney Concert Hall Virtual Tour (Part 1)
From Sean Holland
Designed by architect Frank Gehry, WDCH is an internationally recognized architectural landmark in downtown Los Angeles, California, and stands as one of the most acoustically sophisticated concert halls in the world.
From the stainless steel curves of its striking exterior to the state-of-the-art acoustics of the hardwood-paneled main auditorium, the 3.6-acre complex embodies the unique energy and creative spirit of the city of Los Angeles and its orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic (also known as the LA Phil).
Thanks to the vision and generosity of Lillian Disney, the Disney family, and many other individual and corporate donors, Los Angeles enjoys the music of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Los Angeles Master Chorale and visiting artists and orchestras from around the world at this renowned venue.
Discover Walt Disney Concert Hall by taking a free self-guided audio tour narrated by John Lithgow and featuring insight from architect Frank Gehry, former Music Director Esa-Pekka Salonen, acoustician Yasuhisa Toyota, principal donor Lillian Disney's daughter Diane Disney Miller and more.
