The Hollywood Bowl’s in-house orchestra is comprised of an entirely different group of musicians than the Los Angeles Philharmonic, which means our organization is home to two world-class orchestras. Led by the inestimable Thomas Wilkins, the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra (“HBO”) will once again collaborate with a wide range of superstars this summer, including Diana Ross, Jennifer Hudson, Michael McDonald, Kenny Loggins, Christopher Cross, and more.
