The Los Angeles Philharmonic will be announcing the details of their 2013/2014 season today’s at 12noon Pacific Time.
I will be there, and for those wanting up-to-the-minute info, I am planning to live tweet from today’s press conference using the hashtag “#LAPhil1314” starting around 11:45am.

The LA Phil has been pretty tight-lipped so far, but they did tweet this over the weekend: “BIG announcement this Monday at noon. Hint: It’s time to celebrate!”
The upcoming season will represent the 10th anniversary of the opening of Walt Disney Concert Hall, so that probably has something to do with it. Also, some concert info has already been released by other performing arts organizations in other cities. From Lincoln Center’s Great Performers and the Philharmonic Society of Orange County come details about these concerts:
- March 16, 2014 (Avery Fisher Hall, New York): Corigliano – Symphony No. 1; Tchaikovsky – Symphony No. 5 (Gustavo Dudamel, conductor)
- March 17, 2014 (Avery Fisher Hall, New York): Bjarnason – New Work; Rachmaninoff – Piano Concerto No. 1 (Yuja Wang, piano); Brahms – Symphony No. 2 (Gustavo Dudamel, conductor)
- April 26, 2014 (Segerstrom Concert Hall, Costa Mesa): Bartok – Violin Concerto No. 2 (Gil Shaham); Macmillan – Three interludes from The Sacrifice; other works TBD (Stéphane Denève, conductor)
We’ll see very soon what else they have in store.
