The Ebell of Los Angeles 

Designed by architect Sumner Hunt, the Ebell of Los Angeles is commemorating its 92nd year on Wilshire Boulevard. With three levels and 75,000 square feet, the renaissance-inspired structure is a noted architectural treasure and registered National Historic Landmark. The building includes a grand dining room, art salon, courtyard garden, and 1,238 seat Broadway-style theater. History resonates throughout the building – the Art Salon was one of the first art galleries in Los Angeles to showcase women artists; Judy Garland was discovered on the Wilshire Ebell Theatre stage; and in nine decades, the theatre stage has been graced by performers ranging from Elizabeth Taylor to Beyoncé.

The Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels

The cathedral of the Roman Catholic Church in Los Angeles, California, United States of America. Opened in 2002, it serves as the mother church for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, as well as the seat of Archbishop José Horacio Gómez.

The Cathedral was designed by the Pritzker Prize-winning Spanish architect Rafael Moneo. Using elements of postmodern architecture, the church and the Cathedral Center feature a series of acute and obtuse angles while avoiding right angles. Contemporary statuary and appointments decorate the complex. Prominent of these appointments are the bronze doors and the statue called The Virgin Mary, all adorning the entrance and designed by Robert Graham.

Zipper Hall at Colburn Downtown Los Angeles
200 S. Grand Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90012    

“Zipper Hall is acoustically  the best performance spaces in the Los Angeles area.”
– Dream Orchestra

One of LA’s most popular performance halls, Zipper Hall is a 430-seat intimate theater with the amenities of a modern performance space. The hall’s ceiling rises more than 60 feet over the stage and 16 feet above the acoustically transparent trellis. The stage is approximately 1,100 square feet and is set under nine lighting “clouds” that provide a soft ambient glow. The "clouds" are acoustical elements, which along with more than 6,000 square feet of motorized heavy velour drapery, can be adjusted to accommodate a variety of genres. The hall is equipped with cutting-edge sound equipment and is suitable for a wide array of events, including music, dance, lectures, meetings, corporate seminars, and recording sessions.

Walt Disney Concert Hall, Los Angeles

The concert hall was designed as a single volume, with orchestra and audience occupying the same space. Seats are located on each side of the stage, providing some audience members with distant views of the performers’ sheet music. The former director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic felt boxes and balconies implied social hierarchies within the audience, and spatial segregation was minimized in the design. Curvilinear planes of Douglas fir provide the only partitions, delineating portions of the 2,265 member audience without creating visual obstructions. The steel roof structure spans the entire space, eliminating the need for interior columns. The organ stands at the front of the hall, a bouquet of 6,134 curved pipes extending nearly to the ceiling. It is the unique result of a collaboration between Gehry and Manuel J. Rosales, a Los Angeles-based organ designer.
