James Taylor and Brandi Carlile Added to Star-studded Lineup to Perform Joni Mitchell Songs in Her Honor
Joni Mitchell’s songs are the most sublime paintings of the landscapes of human emotions ever created. They are an unprecedented marriage of intimacy and universality, creating a sound that is incomparable, yet relatable to all. She is a trailblazer, a wanderer and a searcher, who continuously explored new territory and invited the world to join her on her journey of discovery.
A limited amount of additional tickets have been released as James Taylor and Brandi Carlile join the previously announced powerful line-up of singers and musicians honoring Joni Mitchell on her 75th birthday and celebrating her tremendous career as part of JONI 75: A Birthday Celebration Live at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion on November 6 and 7, 2018, presented by The Music Center. On both nights, an incredible array of artists, including Glen Hansard, Emmylou Harris, Norah Jones, Chaka Khan, Diana Krall, Kris Kristofferson, Los Lobos, Graham Nash, Seal, and Rufus Wainwright will perform Joni Mitchell songs from all stages of her life, across the entire oeuvre of her 19 studio albums in her honor. Co-musical directors/arrangers for the concert are drummer Brian Blade, who recorded three studio albums and toured extensively with Mitchell, and pianist, composer, arranger and producer Jon Cowherd.
Joni Mitchell performed on the stage of The Music Center’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion on two occasions, in 1972 and 1974. The Los Angeles Times headline for the 1972 concert read, “Joni Mitchell in a Giant Living Room” and, in 1974, read, “'New' Joni Sparks Dancing in the Aisles.” The concerts will be a return of her music to the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, creating both an intimate “living room” experience and a joyous celebration of her work by artists who have been deeply impacted by her music and wish to honor her through their performances.
This exhibtion is on view at The Ira Gershwin Gallery inside The Walt Disney Concert Hall. Visitors can reserve times to access the gallery via The Music Center’s self-guided tour schedule weekdays from 10am – 3pm. Ticket holders to any concert during the Centennial season can access the gallery 90 minutes prior to performances.
LA Phil collaborated with media artist Refik Anadol to present an interactive exhibition in the Ira Gershwin Gallery where visitors are be able to “fly through” a futuristic universe made up of thousands of the orchestra’s performances and memories.
A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed he could have. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he’s always wanted: a chance to finally fit in. Dear Evan Hansen is the deeply personal and profoundly contemporary musical about life and the way we live it.
The Yamaguchis and the Montaños are two immigrant families struggling to provide a future for their American-born children after the Great Depression on the farmland they share. But as their oldest children fall in love—secretly—the attack on Pearl Harbor throws these Mexican and Japanese American families into uncertainty and turmoil. When the Yamaguchis are interned along with thousands of other Japanese Americans, allegiances are tested, heroes are made, and the two young lovers must find a way to stay loyal to each other—and their country.
Presented in Association with El Teatro Campesino
Theater artist Kaneza Schaal first came to REDCAT as a performer with seminal New York ensembles The Wooster Group and Elevator Repair Service. Now she returns with her own work as the director and co-creator of JACK &, a multimedia comedy of errors structured on social codes and trainings. From The Honeymooners and Amos & Andy to debutante balls and prison re-entry programs, JACK & is a place of theatrical imagination that inhabits the liminal space between dream and reality. Starring Cornell Alston, the piece considers re-entry to society after prison through a prism of baking fiascos, minimalist painters, ancestral ceremonies, and the dreaming one gives to the state while incarcerated. Drawing from diverse social rituals, JACK & gives creative dream time its due. Featuring design by artist/author Christopher Myers and a live sound score by Rucyl Mills.

Johann Sebastian Bach | Magnificat in D Major
Reena Esmail | This Love Between Us: Prayers for Unity (West Coast Premiere)
J.S. Bach’s Magnificat is a majestic musical manifestation of the impulse to rejoice. The Baroque masterpiece was an ambitious statement made by the composer at the time and is widely hailed as one of his most joyous and expansive works. Magnificat directly influenced contemporary Los Angeles composer Reena Esmail who wrote This Love Between Us: Prayers for Unity specifically to be paired with it. In her piece, Esmail juxtaposes words from seven major religious traditions of India (Buddhism, Sikhism, Christianity, Zoroastrianism, Hinduism, Jainism, and Islam) to explore how they each approach the topics of unity, harmony, and of being kind to one another, aka, “The Golden Rule.”
Combining film clips with live performances of the scores, we bring to life the iconic music chosen by late legendary director Stanley Kubrick – from Beethoven to Penderecki. By Arrangement with Warner Bros. Pictures.
