WXXI-FM brings listeners a 13-week series of concerts from the Los Angeles Philharmonic airing Tuesdays. The L.A. Philharmonic returns to the radio on Tuesday, July 31, 2012 at 8 p.m. on Classical 91.5/FM-HD 91.5-1. Accompanying each concert will be a different intermission feature highlighting the city of Los Angeles. The intermission segments focus on trends in LA, and the uniqueness and diversity of this city in its cultural offerings. Guests include noted visual artists, authors, educators, chefs, film directors and musicians, as well as administrators and producers.

The Philharmonic owes its birth to William Andrews Clark, Jr., a multi-millionaire and amateur musician. He established the city's first permanent symphony orchestra in 1919. Today, under the dynamic leadership of 29-year-old Venezuelan Gustavo Dudamel, who in 2009 became the orchestra’s eleventh music director, the Philharmonic is still recognized as one of the world’s outstanding orchestras.
