The Music Center: Free World City concerts for Families

If you've ever climbed up in the airy garden on top of the Walt Disney Concert Hall, you know about the special performance space that hides amongst the folds of Frank Gehry's marvelous, silvered building. The W.M. Keck Children's Amphitheater is a welcoming and open space, and whenever we wander around to check out the garden (or to climb up those hidden ladders into the wings of the building), we long for performers to magically come to life so we can sink into the seats and enjoy.
