Enjoyed the marvelous sounds produced by the Los Angeles Master Chorale and Orchestra conducted by Grant Gershon in Bach's St. John Passion at Disney Hall. The hall is celebrating its 10th year of being open in 2013-14, and is definitely newer than some other famous concert halls, such as New York's Carnegie Hall, a favorite, or Philadelphia's Academy of Music,...

It is a very modern space, excellent acoustic and you will spend a few hours immerse in the most sublime surrounding.

There is nothing like the Frank Gehry-designed Disney Hall in LA, or maybe even the 11 Western states. It is a breathtakingly beautiful building, and the creamy wooden interior is not only beautiful, it makes for perfect acoustics, no matter what the concert. My favorite concert was the estimable Hector Olivera, organist, who made those gorgeous post-moderne pipes rattle the... More

What more could you ask for? A great location in downtown LA, beautiful to look at inside and out. The height of the setting allows for seating to go up rather than spread out thus giving a more intimate feel. Visited on a previous occasion to see the Gay Men's Choir of LA, this time the contemporary collaboration Rhye, both... More

This is a fabulous hall. Just don't sit in the seats that are parallel to the east/west walls that get to be over the stage. Acrophobia!!!! Otherwise, it is great. The architecture is spectacular and the programs mind-expanding and eclectic.

The Concert Hall is a magnificent architectural design and a triumph of acoustics. Check the website for events, but you can also visit and tour the Hall for a nominal fee. If you're in Downtown L.A., take the "B" shuttle bus for a quarter and you will visit each of the great landmarks, where you can get off and on... More

I am a musician and the acoustics in this concert hall are great. It's a small modern miracle of construction, with its curved metal exterior, atop Bunker Hill in downtown Los Angeles. Parking is underground. Easy freeway access to both north/South and East/West freeways.

We were on a sightseeing bus going past the theatre but even with the brief viewing it is definitely worth going to see if you are interested in architecture. It was a sunny day and the light reflecting off the buildings various curved surfaces made it look very impressive. Not the sort of building you come across every day so... More

Dropped by for a fun and free audio tour on a Monday morning. Audio tour took about 50 minutes. Really interesting to walk all around the building and see and hear about it. As advertised you will not see the actual concert hall. I was going to try a quick peek but there were employees stationed at all the doors.
