LOS ANGELES, CA, May 13, 2020— The Los Angeles Philharmonic Association is canceling the 2020 seasons at the Hollywood Bowl and The Ford. Seasons at these two Los Angeles County venues, normally scheduled from June through September, are programmed by the LA Phil and feature a wide variety of artists, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic. 

“Play Your Part,” a $35 million campaign. “Play Your Part” will support all of the Association’s ongoing operations and programs, including the LA Phil’s YOLA (Youth Orchestra Los Angeles) program and other educational initiatives, which serve more than 150,000 youth, families, and teachers every year. As part of the overall campaign, Hollywood Bowl ticketholders will have the option of supporting what has been a summertime tradition for generations of Los Angeles families by donating the value of their tickets back to the LA Phil, raising an initial $1 million from a challenge grant from Jane and Michael Eisner. Chad Smith, the Association’s Chief Executive Officer, David C. Bohnett Chief Executive Officer Chair, said, “The cancellation of our summer programs and the resulting impact on our musicians and staff is devastating. We are all broken hearted..and share the disappointment of all those who look forward to the Bowl and Ford seasons every year.

..”Our task now, which we share with all of Los Angeles, is to go forward with strength and resilience… The LA Phil has been here for more than one hundred years, and the Hollywood Bowl and The Ford for almost as long. We are doing what is necessary to ensure that we are all here for the next century.” Gail Samuel, President of the Hollywood Bowl and Chief Operating Officer of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association, said, “The Hollywood Bowl and The Ford are much more than performance venues.

They are iconic places and represent summer traditions that have played a part in defining Los Angeles itself. It’s .. saddening to acknowledge that the 2020 summer season is gone, but the LA Phil isn’t going anywhere. Our cultural community is among the most vibrant and creative in the world.We have every reason to look ahead with hope and confidence to next summer’s centennial celebrations at the Hollywood Bowl and The Ford.”

For information about donating to the LA Phil or how to manage your tickets, contact us by email at information@laphil.org or by phone at 323 850 2000 between 10am and 5pm Monday through Friday.
