The Walt Disney Concert Hall is located on the south end of the Music Center Campus. The Concert Hall is bordered by Hope Street (West), Grand Avenue (West), First Street (North) and Second Street (South).
Designed by architect Frank Gehry, the Walt Disney Concert Hall is designed to be one of the most acoustically sophisticated concert halls in the world, providing both visual and aural intimacy for an unparalleled musical experience. The auditorium, designed to look and feel like a ship's hull, features 2,265 audience seats which surround the orchestra, as well as natural lighting. The Walt Disney Concert Hall is wheelchair accessible and provides Phonic Ear sound system headsets for the hard of hearing.
The Walt Disney Concert Hall encompasses two outdoor amphitheaters, including the William M. Keck Children's Amphitheatre (seating 300) and a second performing space (120), as well as BP Hall, a space for pre-concert events. Part of the Walt Disney Hall complex, the Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater (REDCAT), is a 250-seat multi-use theater and a 3,000-square-foot art gallery operated and programmed by California Institute of the Arts.
From the stainless steel curves of its striking exterior to the state-of-the-art acoustics of the hardwood-paneled main auditorium, the 3.6-acre complex embodies the unique energy and creative spirit of the city of Los Angeles and the Resident Companies that call the Concert Hall home.
