Disney Concert Hall
In 1987 the late Lillian Disney made an initial donation of $50 million to build a world-class performance venue as a gift to the people of Los Angeles and a tribute to Walt Disney’s devotion to the arts.

Since then other gifts and accumulated interest bring the Disney family’s total contribution to more than $100 million. Completed in October 2003, the total cost of the project was quoted to be $272 million.












 
Today, the Walt Disney Concert Hall rises out of the horizon of downtown L.A. like a shinning futuristic cruise ship.

The exterior is covered in stainless steel panels, with soaring angles and undulating walls mimicking waves of sound energy. The architecture is both stunning and unique; completely unlike anything else bordering its 3.6-acre lot. Architect Frank Gehry ensured that visually and sonically the Walt Disney Concert Hall would indeed evocate music.

The gentle curvature of the building is reflected inside as well. The centerpiece of the 2,265 seat auditorium is an open platform stage with 360-degree padded seating, carpeted floors and a majority of the vertical and ceiling surfaces of Douglas fir wood. This spectacular venue is home to the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra and also hosts many other Hollywood events.

Pro Sound worked with the project design consultants to provide state-of-the-art systems that were on budget and on time.
