Classical music isn't exactly "hot" right now as most of the original artists are long-dead. But with the talent of the Los Angeles Phil Harmonic Orchestra and the leadership of conductor Gustavo Dudamel, the works of the world's most beloved composers are experiencing a resurgence in popularity. Dudamel's passion for music is palpable—as he forcefully waves his wand and passionately shakes his luxurious flowing locks, he commands the band to make our ears swoon and our hearts boom. From Disney Concert Hall to Disney County, the LA Philharmonic performs at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts for one night only. Resurrect your love for the instrumental works of late, great cadaverous composers as the LA Phil spices up Orange County.
