Toyota ups hall donation

Toyota Motor Sales USA Inc. has donated another $1 million toward construction of the Walt Disney Concert Hall, raising the carmaker’s commitment to the downtown Los Angeles venue to $2 million.

This latest gift brings the total amount raised during the capital campaign to $75.96 million. Construction of the concert hall had been delayed by controversy and cost overruns.

In 1990, Toyota became the first corporation to contribute to the Disney Hall fundraising campaign with a $1 million pledge earmarked for an elaborate pipe organ that would be the centerpiece of the concert hall’s interior.

“Adding Disney Hall to Los Angeles’ cultural mosaic will make for an exciting expansion of performing arts offerings in our city,” said Yoshio Ishizaka, president and CEO of Toyota Motor Sales USA. “Toyota is delighted to be a part of such a wonderful project.”

The Walt Disney Concert Hall, designed by Los Angeles architect Frank Gehry, will augment the existing Music Center in downtown Los Angeles.
