Dudamel, Dolly Parton, Quincy Jones top Hollywood Bowl 2011 season [updated]

January 25, 2011 |  1:02 pm

 

Bowl
Gustavo Dudamel will conduct five programs at the Hollywood Bowl, up from three last year, and Dolly Parton will make her debut at the iconic venue during the 2011 Bowl season that will be announced Wednesday morning.

DollyParton This summer’s lineup is the customary unclassifiable mix of classical and jazz, pop and global rhythms, old hands and debutantes, the reassuringly familiar and the unexpected.

Season tickets go on sale Wednesday. While mostly complete, the schedule has a few "to be announced" spots and names that will be filled in by May 7, when single tickets go on sale.
