Tony nominee Vanessa Williams will host LA Phil LIVE with Gustavo Dudamel from Walt Disney Concert Hall, a live broadcast in over 450 movie theaters across the U.S. and Canada, to be held on January 9.

The broadcast will feature up-close and dramatic views of Dudamel and the orchestra in action, captured with multiple high definition cameras and in 5.1 digital surround sound. It will also provide an insider's look at the LA Phil via the "backstage pass" feature, which includes live behind-the-scenes interviews, rehearsal footage and a post-concert Q&A.

The program includes Adams' Slonimsky's Earbox, Bernstein's Symphony No. 1, "Jeremiah" and Beethoven's Symphony No. 7, with concerts to also be held January 6 - 8.

Additional LA Philharmonic concert broadcasts will include an all-Tchaikovsky program interspersed with performances by actors reading related Shakespeare texts (March 13) and an all-Brahms program (June 5).
