The Los Angeles Philharmonic celebrates each of its season openings with extraordinary events that have become the city's proudest cultural traditions. Set in two iconic concert venues, these exciting parties raise significant operating funds which support the LA Phil and its education initiatives. We hope you will consider taking part in these two wonderful traditions in your support of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
