Royce Hall

“The sound is exceptionally bright, smooth and
well balanced, something of an acoustic miracle.”
-Los Angeles Times

GMCLA returns to live, in-person performances and presents all three concerts at UCLA’s Royce Hall, where it performed in the 1990s prior to the building’s restoration.

The extraordinary history of performing arts presentations at Royce Hall is rooted in the late 1930s, when George Gershwin, Duke Ellington, Arnold Schoenberg and Jimmy Dorsey’s Band all performed at this exquisite venue. Since then, the theatre has featured many illustrious artists including Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic, Twyla Tharp and Frank Zappa. Today Royce Hall continues to be a premiere performing arts destination.

Your GMCLA experience at Royce Hall will be safe, comfortable and unforgettable!
