Arts and Culture
Frank Gehry has started initial conversations with the LA Philharmonic and other groups about events that could engage audiences at the LA River. Music has shown that it can have a positive impact on disadvantaged communities. El Sistema is a great example, and the program in Venezuela produced LA Philharmonic’s own Gustavo Dudamel. One local example of El Sistema is the Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles. Other ideas could be art fairs, movie nights, fireworks, etc.
