The Music Center


As one of the largest performing arts centres in the United States, and as a cultural anchor in Los Angeles County, The Music Center convenes artists, communities and ideas with the goal of enriching the cultural lives of every resident.

With four iconic theatres and four renowned resident companies – Center Theatre Group, the Los Angeles Master Chorale, LA Opera and the LA Phil – along with its illustrious dance programming, Glorya Kaufman Presents Dance at The Music Center, The Music Center is home to some of the world’s best artistic programs and events.

Offering compelling programs relevant to a range of audiences, The Music Center is a destination where audiences can find inspiration in great live performances, as well as nationally recognised arts education and participatory arts experiences.

With The Music Center On Location, the non-profit performing arts organisation brings events and activities to locations outside of its Downtown Los Angeles campus.

The Music Center also programs and manages Grand Park, a 12-acre adjacent greenspace, with year-round free programming.


We champion the arts in Los Angeles for all people.

We connect the people of Los Angeles with one another and with art that can enrich their lives. We embrace patrons, visitors and community members from all backgrounds. We provide exceptional service to our resident companies and to all who present or experience the arts at The Music Center, and we faithfully steward the campus entrusted to us by the County of Los Angeles.
