The Walt Disney Concert HALL
was opened in October 2003 and has been a cultural
landmark in the City of Los Angeles. Known by it's architecture and superior acoustics this creative ENDEAVOR was the perfect challenge to ARCHITECT Frank Gehry. Lillian Disney wanted the Concert hall to be built in memory of her husband, Walt. She wanted her husband's Passion of music to live on in
the heart of a city that they loved.

Frank Gehry, when building the hall envisioned it as

"a living room for the city," A place where music and culture would

be accessible to all peoples. With it's modern and stanless steel

design it took 16 years to come to fruition, and is now not only a

Los Angeles landmark, but a world renowned symbol of art.
