What is Disney Concert Hall

Walt Disney Concert Hall

The Walt Disney Concert Hall is a building in Los Angeles, California.
The complex is located on the hill of Bunker Hill at 111 South Grand Avenue in downtown Los Angeles and is bordered by Hope Street, Grand Avenue and 1st and 2nd Streets. It is one of four event buildings in the Los Angeles Music Center, one of the largest performing arts centers in the United States.
The Walt Disney Concert Hall, which opened on October 23, 2003 according to plans by architect and designer Frank Gehry, is one of the most important concert halls in the world because of its modern acoustics and architecture. While the architecture (as with other works by Gehry) aroused mixed opinions, the acoustics of the concert hall received widespread praise, unlike the nearby Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.
The building is home to the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Master Choirs. The construction of the concert hall can be traced back to a public-private partnership initiative between Lillian Disney (1899–1997), other members of the Disney family as well as sponsors and Los Angeles County.
The stainless steel building is shaped like a large sailing ship with curved and undulating outlines. It has an area of ​​2,140 square meters and space for 2,265 visitors. In addition to the concert hall, the building complex houses wide foyers, which are followed by numerous side rooms for introductory events and private gatherings.
The ceiling in the form of wooden arches and the staggered arrangement of the seats ensure modern acoustics and the character of a traditional concert hall. Yasuhisa Toyota, one of the main experts in this sector, was responsible for the acoustics of the sound box. The seats were arranged around the orchestra stage and in the rear part there is a pipe organ in the middle of the seats. Gardens and parks were created around the building.
