LOS ANGELES (FEBRUARY 4, 2014) – The Los Angeles Philharmonic Association today announced the Hollywood Bowl summer 2014 subscription series and single events for its 93rd season at the historic venue. The Hollywood Bowl – named “Best Major Outdoor Concert Venue” by Pollstar magazine for the ninth straight year – is one of the most renowned summer cultural venues in the world and has been the summer home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic since 1922. The 2014 summer season spans 15 weeks, from June to September, and features a wide variety of the world’s greatest artists from all genres of music, with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at its core. New subscriptions for the Hollywood Bowl 2014 summer season are available starting today, and the Hollywood Bowl box office opens for single ticket sales on Sunday, May 4. “The 2014 Hollywood Bowl summer season presents an extraordinary array of music in one of the world’s most iconic musical venues,” said Deborah Borda, LA Phil President and Chief Executive Officer. “The opening of the Hollywood Bowl each year marks the official start of summer for generations of music lovers across Los Angeles. This year is particularly special as Gustavo Dudamel celebrates his fifth season as Music Director at the venue where he made his U.S. debut. He returns with an all-Beethoven program; the third installation of his signature festival, Americas & Americans, with programs that showcase popular and
classical music as well as film composers from North and South America; and of course, his summer appearances include opera – this time two of the great Italian operas - Cavalleria rusticana and Pagliacci. Esa-Pekka Salonen makes a rare visit, and we delight in the return of dear friends, including Joshua Bell, Yo-Yo Ma, Steve Martin and John Williams. Anniversaries abound with the 15th year of the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame Opening Night, the 20th anniversary of DreamWorks Animation and the 50th anniversary of The Beatles’ first Hollywood Bowl performance. Herbie Hancock, entering his fifth season as Creative Chair for Jazz, and Thomas Wilkins, Principal Guest Conductor of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, also return, collaborating with some of the world’s greatest musicians. The season begins when, under the Philharmonic umbrella for the first time, we present the Playboy Jazz Festival. There is something here for everyone, and we look forward to welcoming you back this summer.”

A 1920s-style ladies dressing room features the very first commercial recording ever made of a symphony orchestra outdoors - the 1928 RCA Victor album with Eugene Goossens conducting the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra (made up of members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic). Selections from the album play on a 1926 Victor “Bluebird” Victrola.
To represent the dozens of concerts that have been broadcast live from the Bowl including classical concerts, benefits, and memorials - a 1930s-era parlor features a 1936 Philco “tombstone” radio playing Fred Astaire’s “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” from a CBS broadcast live from the Bowl.
The first national television broadcast from the Hollywood Bowl is represented by an RCA KCS47 black & white TV playing a clip of The Colgate Comedy Hour (1954).
For the 1960s, the “Mad Men” era is demonstrated by a sophisticated bachelor pad complete with a high fidelity component system - turntable, amps, pre-amps, woofers and tweeters - all playing an LP of the Hollywood Bowl Symphony Orchestra.
A teenage bedroom of the 1970-80s features clips from The Brady Bunch and Monty Python at the Hollywood Bowl, as well as audio from popular artists such as Miles Davis and Pink Floyd.
The modern-day digital age brought many live-concert DVD releases, some of which are featured in the exhibit, including Van Morrison, Aerosmith, DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist, Mariachi USA, the Korean Festival, and the webcast of Gustavo Dudamel’s 2009 welcome as Music Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Bienvenido Gustavo.
BEATLES AT THE BOWL To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Beatles’ first performance at the Hollywood Bowl, the Hollywood Bowl Museum will have a special "Beatles at the Bowl" exhibit on the 2nd floor featuring original photographs of the Fab Four at the Bowl, film footage, and memorabilia.
