Ten Los Angeles Philharmonic concerts from the current Hollywood Bowl season will be broadcast on Classical KUSC’s SoCal Sunday Night series, the station’s weekly spotlight on local concerts, beginning Sunday, August 11, at 7PM. 


This is the thirteenth year of the orchestra’s summer partnership with Southern California’s listener-sponsored classical music radio station. This broadcast series gives more than 750,000 KUSC listeners across Southern California the opportunity to experience Hollywood Bowl performances each week.

The concerts are recorded live on select nights at the Hollywood Bowl, featuring the Los Angeles Philharmonic with a stellar roster of artists and conductors. Hosted and produced by KUSC’s Brian Lauritzen, the programs air weekly at 7PM on Sundays from August 11 through October 13, and are heard throughout much of Southern California on 91.5 Classical KUSC.

The broadcasts are also streamed live and on demand at and on the KUSC app. Most concerts will be available for streaming on-demand for one week following the broadcast on Interviews and features with soloists and orchestra members throughout the series offer unique insights and give listeners a more in-depth perspective.

The KUSC broadcast series of the Los Angeles Philharmonic has been made possible through the support of the Office of Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl.
