Catch Ma, Shaham & the Dude on LA Phil’s Online Stream

LA Phil is presenting a series of ten concerts that can be heard either over the radio or online


Together with Southern California radio station KUSC, the Los Angeles Philharmonic is presenting a series of ten concerts that can be heard either over the radio or online. The series began Saturday, with a broadcast of Joshua Bell and Edgar Meyer’s recent debut of Meyer’s latest piece, Double Concerto, and will continue with Saturday afternoon broadcasts of many of today’s most valued musicians, including cellist Yo-Yo Ma (September 1), violinist Gil Shaham (October 6), and four performances led by the charismatic conductor Gustavo Dudamel (September 1, 8, 15, and 22).

The concerts will be recorded live on select Classical Tuesdays and Thursdays, featuring the LA Phil with a stellar roster of artists and conductors, as well as the Sunday Sunset presentations of Verdi’s Rigoletto and Dudamel & Domingo, and the Weekend Spectacular presentation of John Williams: Maestro of the Movies.

Hosted and produced by KUSC’s Brian Lauritzen, the programs air weekly at 2 PM on Saturdays, from August 11 through October 13, and are heard widely throughout much of Southern California on 91.5 Classical KUSC, 88.5 KPSC in Palm Springs, 91.1 KDSC in Thousand Oaks, 99.7 KESC in Morro Bay and San Luis Obispo, and 88.7 KQSC in Santa Barbara. The programs also can be heard online at Most concerts will be available for online streaming for one week following the broadcast.

Interviews and features with soloists and orchestra members throughout the series offer unique insights and give listeners a more in-depth perspective.
