The Walt Disney Concert Hall at 111 South Grand Avenue in Downtown of Los Angeles, California, is the fourth hall of the Los Angeles Music Center and was designed by Frank Gehry. It opened on October 24, 2003. Bounded by Hope Street, Grand Avenue, and 1st and 2nd Streets, it seats 2,265 people and serves, among other purposes, as the home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestra and the Los Angeles Master Chorale. The hall is in a vineyard seating configuration, similar to the Berliner Philharmonie by Hans Scharoun.Lillian Disney made an initial gift of $50 million in 1987 to build a performance venue as a gift to the people of Los Angeles and a tribute to Walt Disney's devotion to the arts and to the city. The Frank Gehry-designed building opened on October 24, 2003. Both Gehry's architecture and the acoustics of the concert hall, designed by Yasuhisa Toyota, have been praised, in contrast to its predecessor, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.

  • Honestly, this building is the most fun when you walk on it. There are stairs everywhere offering a new and neat view of the building and the city. You can easily walk on the sidewalk, but wear your a...  more »
  • THIS FRANK GEHRY Structure is outstanding, so even if you don't want to pay for a ticket, which can be expensive, you could eat at the cafe inside, or take a tour or just enjoy the scene. 
  • Peculiar structure with imaginative lines and almost magical. Beautiful also the surrounding neighborhood, well maintained and with other small gems of architecture

  • The beauty of this building in real life does not disappoint. I've seen pictures of this structure so many times. Always wanted to go and visit it, walk the Aerial Walkway. Those walls are like polished steel canyons. Go at dusk and enjoy the orange colors. The Blue Ribbon Garden and the Rose fountain in it are especially peaceful. All of these can be reached on the Aerial Walkway that circles the building. Open to the public.
  • I am fortunate to work regularly at Walt Disney Concert Hall. Frivolous beauty silhouette pewter to azure. situated iconically above Los Angeles. Crowning arts, museums, Courts, Hall of Records, Our Lady of the Angeles. Adjoined via Grand Park - City Hall. Our view from DWP down as far as the sea just how great living in America truly is. If you have not been, go see your city. It is all very close by once you are down there. Take your camera, many unusual backgrounds. You will be only a few blocks from the glass sky slide.
  • I saw Kamasi Washington and Ron McCurdy. The Walt Disney Concert Hall is one of the best places in Los Angeles to hear musicians play their best.
  • An excellent venue for live concerts, opera, plays, and more. Great photo hot spot, with many photo spots with amazing views and backgrounds. I've seen many couples doing photo shoots I and I think it's lovely.
  • I have been insideand outside of the Walt Disney Concert Hall and it is a wonderful place to visit. I like the garden which brings the beauty and very peaceful area for a calm walk and enjoying a little nature.
