For years, KUSC listeners have had a front-row seat to hear local favorites with SoCal Sunday Night, our weekly concert showcase. We had to put it on hiatus for much of the last year, but it’s back in a big way! KUSC’s Brian Lauritzen hosts 13 concerts from the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Gustavo Dudamel.

Enjoy a trip to the concert hall without leaving your couch, car, or kitchen! SoCal Sunday Night: The Los Angeles Philharmonic, Sundays at 7PM. See what’s scheduled below:
