Free Concert (really!) at the Walt Disney Concert Hall

One of our first years in Los Angeles, we learned that the
Walt Disney Concert Hall would be hosting an afternoon of free, short concerts. Free, really?

Yes, really. OK, this was something we could actually go to - with our kids. We trucked down there Sunday afternoon after church - even found free street parking a block away.

It was crowded, but very manageable.

It was nice to see that there were other families and kids there as well.

This was back in 2007 - our kids were 8 and 5 1/2. We had to wait about 30 minutes to get in, which wasn't bad, but we should have brought a couple more things to keep them engaged while waiting in line (my son was smart and brought his electronic "leapster" game).

Heading inside.

I've seen hundreds of photos of the outside of the building - but never anything with people.

And I've never seen photos of the interior, which was very impressive. The Walt Disney Concert Hall has a strict policy against photography during an actual performance, so I limited to my interior photos to a couple before the concert began.

The concert was relatively short - just 40 minutes - which was perfect for our kids (I don't think our would have lasted much longer than that).

Glad we went. A real "experiencing L.A" opportunity.

Apparently, this is something that's offered every couple years or so, including earlier this month. They also offer free tours of the Concert Hall throughout the year.

Here's some additional information, and photos.
