Ten Los Angeles Philharmonic concerts from the current Hollywood Bowl season will be broadcast on Classical California KUSC’s SoCal Sunday Night series, the station’s weekly spotlight on local concerts, beginning Sunday, September 4, at 7PM.   

This is the fifteenth year of the orchestra’s summer partnership with Southern California’s listener-sponsored classical music radio station. This broadcast series gives more than 550,000 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, and feature 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 September 4 through November 6, and are heard throughout much of Southern California on 91.5 FM Classical California KUSC.
