On July 11, 1922, conductor Alfred Hertz and the Los Angeles Philharmonic inaugurated the first season of music under the stars at the Hollywood Bowl. One of the largest natural amphitheaters in the world, with a current seating capacity of just under 18,000, the Hollywood Bowl has been the summer home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic since its official opening in 1922. Legendary artists including Frank Sinatra, Barbara Streisand, The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, Garth Brooks, Nat "King" Cole, Billie Holiday, Elton John, and Judy Garland have headlined star-studded shows at the Bowl. Today, each season presents World Music, Jazz, Classical and the Weekend Spectacular featuring the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra. Don't come to the Bowl without stopping by the terrific and free Hollywood Bowl Museum. It's open every night before concerts, and daytime all year round.
