This weekend's Tchaikovsky Spectacular at the Hollywood Bowl will feature fireworks and three of California's top-ranked Drum Corps.

The Los Angeles Philharmonic presents its annual Tchaikovsky Spectacular this weekend at the Hollywood Bowl that will culminate each night with the thrilling 1812 Overture accompanied by cannons and a spectacular fireworks display.

Performances will begin at 8 pm both Friday and Saturday nights.

Robert Moody conducts the orchestra in the all-Tchaikovsky program which includes Selections from Swan Lake Suite, Op. 20, Capriccio Italien, Festival Coronation March and a Ukrainian Folk Song Suite (drawn from the Symphony No. 2).

The annual bowl tradition offers a new twist this season – the brass, drum corps, and color guard of three of California’s top-ranked drum and bugle corps, Pacific Crest, Santa Clara Vanguard, and the Vanguard Cadets, recent winners of the Drum Corp International Open Class World Championship Finals, performing in a Drumline-style collaboration.

Robert Moody has been Music Director of the Winston-Salem Symphony (North Carolina) since 2005, Artistic Director of Arizona Musicfest since 2007, and Music Director of the Portland Symphony Orchestra (Maine) since 2008.

Moody has accompanied many of the world’s greatest performing artists, including Yo-Yo Ma, Itzhak Perlman, Renée Fleming, Denyce Graves, André Watts, Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg, Midori, Time for Three and Chris Thile.

The Hollywood Bowl is located at 2301 N Highland Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90068.

Tickets are available at HollywoodBowl.com or Ticketmaster.com, or via phone at 323.850.2000 or 800.745.3000 and in person at the Hollywood Bowl Box Office.
