The Los Angeles Philharmonic Association has announced that it will reopen its outdoor concert venues – the Hollywood Bowl and The Ford – for the 2021 season. To kick off the reopening, the LA Phil will host four free concerts for healthcare workers, first responders, and essential workers "as a gesture of thanks for all they have done for Los Angeles throughout the pandemic."
Beginning in July, the Hollywood Bowl will present 14 weeks of concerts including crowd favorites such as Fourth of July fireworks, Tchaikovsky Spectacular, and Sing-A-Long Sound of Music. Detailed information on programming, dates, and ticketing for the Hollywood Bowl will be announced May 11 and for The Ford May 25.
Based on Los Angeles County Public Health guidance, the Hollywood Bowl will be able to welcome a limited-capacity audience of approximately 4,000 when concerts resume beginning in May and anticipates ramping up to greater capacity later in the summer as guidelines evolve.
