WALT DISNEY CONCERT HALL
Audio and Guided Architecture Tours and a free Concert?

Walt Disney Concert Hall Los AngelesDowntown Los Angeles has not been known as a tourist destination for its spread out sprawl of districts, but since the addition of the Staples Center and L.A. Live (LA Live Entertainment Center and Grammy Museum) more social activity of the city is rising among the tall buildings. What to do in downtown Los Angeles? The Walt Disney Concert Hall is now one of the iconic landmarks of the city’s downtown, unmistakable for its glistening elegant twisted silverized box forms designed by Frank Gehry.
Opened in 2003, the Walt Disney Concert Hall, built with an endowment gift by Lillian Disney, is the current home of the L.A Philharmonic, having moved over from the Dorothy Chandler Chandler Pavilion. Located next to and part of the Music Center complex of theater venues and so near the Los Angeles courts that its underground parking is used for Juror Parking, the Disney makes for a spot to visit in the daytime for a free tour.

Interior Frank Gehry Design Disney Concert hallTours of the Walt Disney Concert Hall are offered as both a free self-guided audio tour, or a paid group docent-led tour. Check-in at the desk in the main lobby for a self-guided tour, or call ahead to reserve a spot in the guided tour. The audio tour is narrated by the voice of award winning actor Jonathan Lithgow, with insights from the architect Frank Gehry himself and other contributing voices. The tours take 60 minutes and are offered on most days. The tours don't include the Concert Hall auditorium because of rehearsals and performances, so if you want see inside the theater, you have buy a ticket for a concert, and probably dress better.

Disney Concert Hall CafeIf you just want to hear a concert performance without a ticket, you can get a snack in the Concert Hall Café, with fresh salads, cheese plates and sandwiches, or daily hot entrees, beer and wine. The music of the L.A. Philharmonic is played through the sound system when a performance is underway. A 90 minute guided tour of all four of the Music Center venues, the Ahmanson Theatre, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, Mark Taper Forum and Walt Disney Concert Hall are also offered as the Symphonian Four-Theater Tour, reserve ahead for times.
Audio Tours - Free 10am – 2pm
Guided Tours - $15 9am - 3pm
