'L.A. Phil Live,' featuring Mahler's Symphony No. 8, to screen at Quality 16
The Los Angeles Philharmonic’s second "L.A. Phil Live" concert of the season - featuring the L.A. Phil and SimÃ³n Bolivar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela performing Mahler’s Symphony No. 8, “Symphony of a Thousand” - will be broadcast live from Caracas, Venezuela and shown in U.S. theaters (including the Goodrich Quality 16 at 3686 Jackson Road) on Saturday, Feb. 18, at 5 p.m. Eastern.
In this performance, audiences will experience Gustavo Dudamel making music on his home turf with more than 1,000 musicians on stage. This presentation is the climactic performance of the L.A. Phil’s Mahler Project - one of the pillars of the orchestra’s season - which features the composer’s complete symphonic cycle presented in both Los Angeles and Caracas.
"LA Phil Live" will be seen in more than 400 theaters across the U.S., and the broadcast also includes behind-the-scenes interviews with Dudamel, the L.A. Phil musicians, rehearsal footage and a live post-concert Q&A with Dudamel.
