Hollywood Bowl Orchestra

The Hollywood Bowl Orchestra (HBO) is a symphony orchestra which is managed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association and plays the vast majority of its performances at the Hollywood Bowl.

John Mauceri led the orchestra from its founding in 1990 until he stepped down after the 2006 Hollywood Bowl season. During this time, his titles included Conductor, Principal Conductor, and finally, Director. He now holds the title of Founding Director.

No replacement for Mauceri has yet been named; however, in March 2008, Thomas Wilkins was named Principal Guest Conductor of the orchestra for a two year contract beginning in Summer of 2008.

Musicians and cross-over with other orchestrasThe Hollywood Bowl Orchestra has 80-100 players drawn from the large pool of world-class freelance musicians in the Southern California area, many of whom perform regularly with movie studios, regional orchestras, and other entertainment-related organizations.

There is no cross-over between the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra musicians and the regular roster of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. This is in notable contrast to the Boston Pops Orchestra which draws its players directly from the Boston Symphony (i.e. the Boston Symphony without its principal players), or the Cincinnati Pops Orchestra which is simply the Cincinnati Symphony playing under a different name.

History

Since 1922 orchestras performed regularly at the bowl, primarily drawn from the Los Angeles area. In 1927 a "Hollywood Bowl Orchestra" was established under conductor Eugene Goossens. The orchestra made a series of recordings for Victor in 1928 issued as "Symphonies under the Stars" notable for being recorded in the open air.

Stokowski's orchestraThe first incarnation of a permanent orchestra was in 1945 as the "Hollywood Bowl Symphony Orchestra" under the direction of Leopold Stokowski. They had a number of recordings under Stokowski plus others under different conductors, including:

Music of George Gershwin with Felix Slatkin conducting and Leonard Pennario piano soloist

Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 with Vladimir Horowitz as soloist and William Steinberg conducting

However, after only two seasons, the orchestra was disbanded, and all the summer orchestral concerts at the

Hollywood Bowl were subsequently performed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

However, another incarnation of the Hollywood Bowl Symphony Orchestra continued into the 1950s and '60s, led by such conductors and Slatkin, Miklós Rózsa, Carmen Dragon, and Alfred Newman, and made numerous recordings for Capitol Records.
