Today is the big day, the one that is expected to be the first in the return of classical music, not only in Los Angeles, but the world (no pressure, there, buddy). 28-year-old Gustavo Dudamel will conduct the Los Angeles Philharmonic for the first time as the symphony's new conductor and music director. The young Leonard Bernstein, as some like to refer to him as, is presenting this first concert free at the Hollywood Bowl. Although all the tickets are gone, in an unprecedented move, the Phil is streaming the concert, which begins at 4 p.m., live online. The streaming begins at 3 p.m. with some pre-activities, so check it out at!
