High School Jazz Ensemble in the Walt Disney Concert Hall Los Angeles

After I closed my rug gallery around 4:30 pm yesterday which was Sunday, and a very slow Mother's day, my wife and I went to a Jazz concert in the Walt Disney Concert Hall in down town Los Angeles. It was my first time there. The building and the concert hall was stunning.

Three of Los Angeles’ leading high school jazz ensembles teamed up for an evening of great music-making in Walt Disney Concert Hall. It was great seeing young musicians play different instruments. In doing this, they learn the team work and appreciation of music and art and saying no to drug and violence.

Carolyn and Berni a very nice couple who are family friends had invited us to this wonderful event. They had gotten the tickets. Our seats were next to their seats and right in the middle of the row with a perfect view of the stage.My wife and I both had a nice time there and enjoyed the program.

A New Space For Music

Designed by architect Frank Gehry, Walt Disney Concert Hall, new home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, is designed to be one of the most acoustically sophisticated concert halls in the world, providing both visual and aural intimacy for an unparalleled musical experience.

Through the vision and generosity of Lillian Disney, the Disney family, and many other individual and corporate donors, the city will enjoy one of the finest concert halls in the world, as well as an internationally recognized architectural landmark.

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.

It was an evening of fun and enjoying the jazz music.
