Walt Disney Concert Hall
Walt Disney Concert Hall TicketsThe Walt Disney Concert Hall stands out as a unique building in the middle of downtown Los Angeles. Designed by Frank Gehry, its stainless steel exterior has sweeping curves and interesting angles. Inside, there are 2,265 seats, and from any of these spots, the sound from the stage is deep and rich. The concert hall opened on 2003, and it's home to the Los Angeles Master Chorale and the Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestra. Part of the construction funds was donated by Lilian Disney, wife of Walt Disney. She donated $50 million in 1987 and got the ball rolling on the initial stages. Many more millions were donated by the family and The Walt Disney Company in subsequent years. To watch performers take the stage, pick up Walt Disney Concert Hall tickets at StubHub.
