KUSC to broadcast Dudamel concerts at Hollywood Bowl, Disney Hall

September 29, 2009 |  3:13 pm


If you can't attend Gustavo Dudamel's upcoming inaugural and gala concerts at the Hollywood Bowl and Walt Disney Concert Hall, there are plenty of ways to experience the events remotely.

This week, KUSC-FM (91.5) announced that it will broadcast portions of Saturday's Bowl concert -- including Dudamel conducting the Los Angeles Philharmonic in a performance of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. 

KUSC said Saturday's live broadcast will begin at 7 p.m. with the YOLA Expo Centre Youth Orchestra performing Beethoven's Ode to Joy, followed by the Ninth Symphony with the L.A. Philharmonic. The radio station will also provide an audio-only webcast of the concert at its site,

In addition, the station said it is providing a live broadcast of the L.A. Philharmonic's Oct. 8 gala both over the airwaves and online.

The Los Angeles Philharmonic previously announced that it will provide a free webcast of Saturday's Bowl concert. The Music Center said last week that it is offering a free outdoor simulcast of the Oct. 8 Disney Hall gala event.
