Testifying to the LA Phil’s commitment to education and engagement during 2018/19, Gustavo Dudamel announced that Frank Gehry, the visionary architect of the world-renowned Walt Disney Concert Hall, will design a permanent YOLA Center in Inglewood, made possible by a leadership gift from Judith and Thomas L. Beckmen. A long-time advocate for aspiring young artists, Gehry will transform a 17,000-square-foot facility in Inglewood to create a central resource for an expanded Youth Orchestra Los Angeles program, to help meet the LA Phil’s goal of doubling the number of students served by 2022. The Judith and Thomas L. Beckmen YOLA Center @ Inglewood underscores the enduring importance of this program to the LA Phil’s mission. 

Those looking for a relatively inexpensive coupling of these "planetary" works may find the Mehta recordings of interest.

You won’t find the monumental constructions of old Brucknerians like Günter Wand, Eugen Jochum, or Herbert von Karajan in MTT’s Bruckner, nor the cosmic spells of Wilhelm Fürtwangler. But for ears attuned to his passionate advocacy of Mahler, MTT’s way will find some satisfying common ground.

Zubin Mehta continues to support the discovery and furtherance of musical talents all over the world. Together with his brother Zarin he is a co-chairman of the Mehli Mehta Music Foundation in Bombay where more than 200 children are educated in Western Classical Music. The Buchmann-Mehta School of Music in Tel Aviv develops young talent in Israel and is closely related to the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, as is a new project of teaching young Arab Israelis in the cities of Shwaram and Nazareth with local teachers and members of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.
