WITH GUEST SETH MACFARLANE AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL
The José Iturbi Foundation supports the Los Angeles Philharmonic as the sponsor of the John Williams: Maestro of the Movies Concert at the Hollywood Bowl on Friday, August 29 and Saturday, August 30. Williams, the incomparable film composer, returns to conduct many of his most popular hits, including music from Jurassic Park and Star Wars. This year, he is joined by special guest Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy, Ted) to pay tribute to some of the classic stars of Warner Bros. Pictures and selections from some of Williams’ beloved movie hits. Legendary concert artist José Iturbi made his first appearance as a premier performer at the Hollywood Bowl more than 50 years ago and continued to perform to sold-out audiences at the Bowl for more than four decades.

ABOUT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL One of the largest natural amphitheaters in the world, with a seating capacity of nearly 18,000, the HOLLYWOOD BOWL has been the summer home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic since its official opening in 1922, and is home to the best and brightest in all genres of music. It remains one of the best deals in Los Angeles; to this day, $1 buys a seat at the top of the Bowl for many of the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s concerts. The venue offers something for everyone, from its sizzling summer evening concerts to the daytime summer arts festival for children, “SummerSounds: Music for Kids at the Hollywood Bowl,” now in its 43rd season. In February 2013, the Hollywood Bowl was named Best Major Outdoor Concert Venue for the ninth year in a row at the 24th Annual Pollstar Concert Industry Awards. The Hollywood Bowl has become synonymous with summer in Southern California.
