The Music Center marked its 50th Anniversary as the epicenter of culture and creativity in Los Angeles with a weekend of celebration events, staged by Corporate Magic. These once-in-a-lifetime commemorative events included a star-studded performance on the stage of the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion—The Music Center 50th Anniversary Spectacular—along with a gala dinner immediately following on Saturday, Dec. 6, which took place 50 years to the day of the opening of The Music Center’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.
For the first time, all four of its world-class resident companies – Center Theatre Group, LA Phil, LA Opera, and the Los Angeles Master Chorale – along with its renowned dance series, Glorya Kaufman Presents Dance at The Music Center, celebrated together all on one night in a special 50th anniversary show. A combination of live talent along with projection technology brought the past and the present to life in dramatic fashion on the stage of the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. The show also incorporated some of The Music Center’s most memorable moments, including its 25-year history as the site for the Academy Awards.
