Hollywood Bowl is an amphitheater in the
neighborhood of Los Angeles, California.
Hollywood Bowl is known for its band shell, a distinctive set of
concentric arches that graced the site from 1929 through 2003, before
being replaced with a larger one beginning in the 2004 season. The
shell is set against the backdrop of the
Hollywood Hills and the
Hollywood Sign to the northeast.
The "bowl" refers to the shape of the concave hillside the
amphitheater is carved into. The bowl is owned by the County of Los
Angeles and is the home of the
Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, the summer
home of the
Los Angeles Philharmonic
Los Angeles Philharmonic and the host of hundreds of
musical events each year.
It is located at 2301 North Highland Avenue, west of the (former) The
French Village, north of
Hollywood Boulevard and the
Hollywood/Highland subway station and south of Route 101.

Discovery and founding
Two women performing on a barn door in the first known musical event
Hollywood Bowl, ca.1920. According to an article in the San
Diego Union newspaper, June 19, 1941, the woman at the piano was
Carrie Jacobs-Bond, one of the originators of the Theatre Arts
Alliance and a resident of nearby
Hollywood Heights. She was assisting
in testing the acoustics. The barn door was placed approximately where
the band shell was built.
The site of the
Hollywood Bowl was chosen in 1919 by William Reed and
his son H. Ellis Reed, who were dispatched to find a suitable
location for outdoor performances by the members of the newly formed
Theatre Arts Alliance headed by Christine Wetherill Stevenson. The
Reeds selected a natural amphitheater, a shaded canyon and popular
picnic spot known as 'Daisy Dell' in Bolton Canyon.
On 11 November 1921 the first Sunrise Service took place at the bowl,
in one of its first major events. The Bowl officially opened on
July 11, 1922. It was also made near a Chinese Theater.

At first, the Bowl was very close to its natural state, with only
makeshift wooden benches for the audience, and eventually a simple
awning over the stage. In 1926, a group known as the Allied Architects
was contracted to regrade the Bowl, providing permanent seating and a
shell. These improvements did provide increased capacity for the
all-time record for attendance set in 1936, when 26,410 people crowded
into the Bowl to hear opera singer Lily Pons, but were otherwise
disappointing[to whom?], as the regrading noticeably[to whom?]
degraded the natural acoustics, and the original shell was deemed
acoustically unsatisfactory[by whom?] (as well as visually
unfashionable, with its murals of sailing ships).
For the 1927 season, Lloyd Wright, (Frank Lloyd Wright's son) built a
pyramidal shell, with a vaguely Southwestern look, out of left-over
lumber from a production of Robin Hood. This was generally regarded[by
whom?] as the best shell the Bowl ever had from an acoustic
standpoint; unfortunately[to whom?], its appearance was deemed[by
whom?] too avant-garde, and it was demolished at the end of the
season. It did, however, get Wright a second chance, this time with
the stipulation that the shell was to have an arch shape.[citation
For the 1928 season,
Lloyd Wright built a shell in the shape of
concentric 120-degree arches, with movable panels inside that could be
used to tune the acoustics. It was designed to be easily dismantled
and stored between concert seasons; apparently for political reasons
this was not done, and it did not survive the winter.
For the 1929 season, the Allied Architects built the shell that stood
until 2003, using a transite skin over a metal frame. Its acoustics,
though not nearly as good as those of the
Lloyd Wright shells, were
deemed satisfactory at first, and its clean lines and white,
almost-semicircular arches were copied for music shells elsewhere. As
the acoustics deteriorated, various measures were used to mitigate the
problems, starting in the 1970s with an inner shell made from large
cardboard tubes (of the sort used as forms for round concrete
pillars), which were replaced in the early 1980s by large fiberglass
spheres (both designed by Frank Gehry) that remained until 2003.
These dampened out the unfavorable acoustics, but required massive use
of electronic amplification to reach the full audience, particularly
since the background noise level had risen sharply since the 1920s.
The appearance underwent other, purely visual, changes as well,
including the addition of a broad outer arch (forming a proscenium)
where it had once had only a narrow rim and the reflecting pool in
front of the stage that lasted from 1953 till 1972. Sculptor George
Stanley designed the Muse Fountain.
He had previously done the Oscar statuette.
Hollywood Bowl re-opening night, 2005
Shortly after the end of the 2003 summer season the 1929 shell was
replaced with a new, somewhat larger, acoustically improved shell,
which had its debut in the 2004 summer season. Preservationists
fiercely opposed the demolition for many years, citing the shell's
storied history. However, even when it was built, the 1929 shell was
(at least acoustically) only the third-best shell in the Bowl's
history, behind its two immediate predecessors. By the late 1970s, the
Hollywood Bowl became an acoustic liability because of continued
hardening of its transite skin. The new shell incorporates design
elements of not only the 1929 shell, but of both the Lloyd Wright
shells. During the 2004 summer season, the sound steadily improved, as
engineers learned to work with its live acoustics.
The current sound reinforcement system is a line-array configuration
of multiple loudspeaker enclosures hung vertically in a curved manner,
with the lower enclosures facing the front sections, and the upper
enclosures angled towards the rear sections. It is manufactured by
L'Acoustics, and includes state-of-the-art audio processing allowing
each individual loudspeaker enclosure to be "tuned" and directed
towards the near-precise location of the listener, regardless of where
in the venue they are sitting. This results in the audience in the
rear sections hearing the same audio, at the same level, as in the
front sections. This electronic processing includes sound level,
frequency equalization, occasional special effects, and time delay
(sound passes through wire much faster than through air, therefore the
sound coming from the speakers must be delayed, allowing the actual
sound from the stage to "catch up" so both sources reach the
listeners' ears simultaneously). The system is maintained by Rat Sound
Systems, the same company that has provided audio for the Coachella
Valley Music and Arts Festival commonly known as the Coachella
Festival, since its inception.[original research?]
The 2004 shell incorporates the prominent front arch of the 1926
shell, the broad profile of the 1928 shell, and the unadorned white
finish (and most of the general lines) of the 1929 shell. In addition,
the ring-shaped structure hung within the shell, supporting lights and
acoustic clouds, echoes a somewhat similar structure hung within the
1927 shell. During the 2004 season, because the back wall was not yet
finished, a white curtain was hung at the back; beginning with the
2005 season, the curtain was removed to reveal a finished back wall.
The architectural design for the shell was developed by the Los
Angeles-based architectural practice Hodgetts and Fung, with the
structural concept developed by the local office of Arup.
At the same time the new shell was being constructed the bowl received
four new video screens and towers. During most concerts, three
remotely operated cameras in the shell, and a fourth, manually
operated camera among the box seats, provide the audience with
close-up views of the musicians.

On July 11, 1922, with the audience seated on simple wooden benches

conductor Alfred Hertz and the
Los Angeles Philharmonic
Los Angeles Philharmonic inaugurated
the first season of music under the stars at the
Hollywood Bowl. While
much has changed in the ensuing years, the tradition of presenting the
world's greatest musicians and striving for musical excellence has
remained a constant goal of this famed
Los Angeles cultural landmark.
Satellite image showing the seating in front of the
Hollywood Bowl has been the summer home of the Los Angeles
Philharmonic, since its official opening in 1922, and, in 1991, gave
its name to a resident ensemble that has filled a special niche in the
musical life of Southern California, the
Hollywood Bowl Orchestra.
In 1945, Leopold Stokowski formed the
Hollywood Bowl Symphony
Orchestra, drawing its players from among members of the Los Angeles
Philharmonic and various film studios orchestras. He made a number of
78 rpm recordings with them for RCA Victor during his two seasons
there (1945–46) before returning to New York. The
Symphony's name was retained for a series of Capitol LPs made in the
1950s under such conductors as Felix Slatkin and Carmen Dragon.
In 1951, a financial crisis closed the
Hollywood Bowl during its
summer season. Dorothy Chandler chaired a committee that organized a
series of fundraising concerts that was able to reopen it.
The film-and-orchestra concert
Bugs Bunny on Broadway, subsequently
Bugs Bunny at the Symphony," has played the
Hollywood Bowl a
record 21 times—19 times with the
Los Angeles Phiharmonic, and twice
Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, all conducted by George Daugherty.
In September 2003, "
Bugs Bunny On Broadway" was the final Los Angeles
Philharmonic concert to be performed in the 1929 shell before its
demolition started the following day, making way for the new shell.
Public Figures – that have appeared at the Bowl throughout the years
include President Franklin Delano Roosevelt,
Mickey Rooney and Edward
G. Robinson, as well as such "teams" as Fonteyn and Nureyev, Nelson
Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald, Simon and Garfunkel, and Abbott and
Mikhail Baryshnikov has danced there, as did Fred Astaire.
Musicians – Al Jolson, Judy Garland, Billie Holiday, Louis
Armstrong, Art Tatum, Buddy Rich, Harry "Sweets" Edison, Nat "King"
Cole, Oscar Peterson, Ella Fitzgerald, Carrie Underwood, The
Doors, José José, Kylie Minogue, Elton John, Alicia Keys, Tom Petty
and the Heartbreakers as well as various other Jazz and non-Jazz
musicians have headlined star-studded shows at the Bowl.
Hollywood Bowl has provided a showcase for the world's greatest
musicians. Bernstein, Walter, Monteux, Mauceri, Koussevitzky,
Stokowski, Karajan, Klemperer, and Leinsdorf, as well as Mehta,
Giulini, Rattle, and Salonen are just a few of the conductors who have

Kygo—and other distinguished vocal and instrumental soloists too
numerous to mention—represent the illustrious talent that has graced
the stage. But never during its long and illustrious history has the
Bowl's programming been limited solely to symphonic events; fully
staged operas were a regular part of the season in the early years,
and the famed Bolshoi Ballet appeared during the 1950s.
