“`The historic Hollywood Bowl is canceling its Summer season for the very first time in its nearly one hundred-year history. The Summer 2020 slate was set to include film screenings and singalongs, concerts from Brandi Carlisle, Diana Ross, and Janelle Monáe, and of course performances by the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

“`The LA Phil estimates that revenues lost from these canceled concerts, as well as a portion of the orchestra’s spring season, will result in a roughly eighty million dollar budget shortfall. To mitigate the losses, the LA Phil must take additional steps to address the financial impact caused by the pandemic and is furloughing 25% of its full-time non-union workforce, as well as the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra through September 30, 2020,  and they are also laying off seasonal Hollywood Bowl employees.

“`This action was made to protect audiences, musicians, employees, and the community from the spread of COVID-19, consistent with, and in response to, the latest guidance from elected and health officials.  Ticketholders to canceled events can use their credit for a future LA Phil-produced concert at the Hollywood Bowl, Walt Disney Concert Hall, or Ford Theatre; or request a refund.
