Editor’s Note: When she prepared this story for us, writer Sheila Tepper said, “I keep thinking of those dollar seats and remembering my son as a senior in high school taking his bicycle and riding there. He loved it so much.” The Bowl officially opens June 3rd, but Tepper urged us to post this story as soon as possible. “Please post soon because there is a lot to plan for people and there is a great variety to choose from and we don’t want our readers to lose out. I truly believe it is a jewel for the city. And it is really in our backyard”  We hope you get to enjoy the Bowl this summer. 


The famous Hollywood Bowl is about to open and it celebrates being here for 100 years!

How lucky we are.

In our backyard we have one of the world’s largest natural amphitheaters in the world, seating nearly 18,000 people, one of the world’s outstanding music and artistic directors Gustavo Dudamel, and one of the most lauded Philharmonics. We also have the 100-year celebration bringing us the finest artists from all genres of music, well loved classics and new thrills for us. Plus more $1 seats for Tuesday and Thursday classical presentations and Wednesday jazz nights, located at the top of the Bowl.

Yes that’s $1 seats!  How lucky we are!

“There is truly no place like the Hollywood Bowl,” said Maestro Gustavo Dudamel. “Nothing can compare to the feeling of performing there on a summer night, as our sound seems to pour out from the hills to the thousands of music lovers spread before us, gathered from everywhere in Los Angeles and around the world. We dedicate our programs in this 100th season to all the people who have made the Hollywood Bowl a part of their lives, year after year, and to the new generation, on our stage and in our audience, that is going to carry the magic of this place far into the future.”
