Introduction

The Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela returned to Los Angeles for their third residency, this time as part of the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Immortal Beethoven festival (nine symphonies; two orchestras; one conductor) where they were in residence from the end of September until mid-October 2015.

Gustavo Dudamel’s latest symphonic cycle included two complete sets, shared between the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela. As with each of the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela residencies, free community and educational events were part of their stay in LA and open to the public.

The residency began in Berkeley, California, where the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela performed two all-Beethoven concerts and a family concert.
