The First Note: Sonic LA

Reeves, night of music to highlight venue's acoustics

In a night meant to define the Disney Concert Hall as the new cultural center of Los Angeles, the Sonic LA inaugural gala will go down Oct. 23.

With the red-carpet arrival, lavish aperitifs and music of the ages, the evening will highlight the capabilities of the hall as an acoustic venue and a significant social space.

The musical program for the evening was selected to emphasize the aural possibilities of the hall’s melding of architectural form and sonic function.

The night will begin with Dianne Reeves singing “The Star-Spangled Banner,” followed by Bach’s “Preludio From Partita No. 3, BWV 1006 for Solo Violin,” Ives’ “The Unanswered Question,” Gabrieli’s “Canzon septimi toni No. 2,” Ligeti’s “Lux aeterna,” Mozart’s Symphony “No. 32 in G, K. 318,” concludes with the L.A. Philharmonic’s signature piece — Stravinsky’s “The Rite of Spring.”

The concert will be followed by dinner from Patina’s Joachim Splichal, a garden soiree with dancing to the music of Pink Martini and an evening-concluding fireworks display.
