Frank Gehry's curving layers of shiny, silvery stainless-steel planks are more than just an architectural marvel. As designed by Yasuhisa Toyota, the sound in the main room is pristine and almost palpable. Part of downtown Los Angeles' Music Center, the hall features a massive concert organ built by Caspar Glatter-Gotz and can seat up to 2,265 people (seating is reserved). The home of the L.A. Philharmonic and the L.A. Master Chorale, Disney Hall also broadens its focus to encompass pop, jazz, R&B, electronic and country musicians like Dianne Reeves, Kraftwerk, John Legend, Björk, Trey Anastasio and Willie Nelson. The multilevel downtown complex includes a bookstore/souvenir shop, a cafe and several bars. Parking is available in an adjoining underground lot.
