It’s the season – the Bowl season. With one of the city’s greatest treasures, the Hollywood Bowl, just a few miles north of the Hancock Park area, we thought we’d take a glimpse back into the development of the site and its rich visual history. For a more complete history check out the slide show on the Bowl’s History and Architecturepage. There are wonderful photos of Lucille Ball, Frank Sinatra, Dinah Shore, Celeste Holm and others.
The very first commercial recording ever made of a symphony orchestra outdoors was the 1928 RCA Victor album with Eugene Goossens conducting the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra (made up of members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic).
This weekend ‘Chicago: The Musical’ plays Friday – Sunday and tickets are available. See you at the Bowl!
