The Youth Orchestra Los Angeles (YOLA) is getting a new, permanent home in Inglewood, and its architect Frank Gehry will join Gustavo Dudamel, Inglewood mayor James T. Butts, Jr., and CEO Simon Woods this week for the unveiling of the project’s design.

Under the leadership of Dudamel and the L.A. Phil, YOLA provides young people with free, high-quality music education and academic support.

Gehry’s design will transform an existing 17,000 sq. ft. structure at Manchester and La Brea into a purpose-built facility. This project is made possible through a gift from Judith and Thomas L. Beckmen.
