Welcome to the Levitt Pavilion Los Angeles

The mission of Levitt Pavilion – Greater Los Angeles & Pasadena is to make live music accessible to all, creating stronger and more connected communities, while celebrating the diversity of cultures, promoting appreciation of the arts, and enriching family values through 50 FREE concerts each year per venue

History

Levitt Pavilion for the Performing Arts Los Angeles at MacArthur Park (LevittLA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2007 to restore the historic band shell in MacArthur Park and present 50 summer concerts annually. Admission is always FREE, making live music and the arts accessible to all. The concerts feature a diverse lineup of artists from acclaimed, emerging talent to seasoned, award-winning performers. Programming is designed to appeal to all tastes, bringing people from all walks of life together to share an evening of great music. As music fills the park, so do families, friends, and Angelinos from all over the city creating community through music. Since 2007, over 250,000 people have gathered in MacArthur Park to picnic on the grassy lawn and enjoy music under the stars.

Each year, LevittLA relies on generous support from the community, private foundations, government programs and corporate sponsors to produce its culturally diverse Summer Concert Season. We welcome your new or continuing support! Contributions of any amount underscore the power of the performing arts to build community, reclaim out city’s green spaces, and foster dreams. Together, we are connecting Angelinos and inspiring generations to come, as music plays in MacArthur Park. Donations are fully tax-deductible.

The Levitt Pavilions here in Pasadena and Los Angeles are part of a growing family of Levitt venues and concert sites across America presenting free outdoor concerts. This year, through both permanent Levitt venues and the Levitt AMP program, free Levitt concerts will be presented in 21 towns and cities. Each celebrates its own community and presents high caliber entertainment featuring a rich array of music genres. Attracting families, friends and neighbors of all ages and backgrounds, Levitt concerts are coveted anchors of community life. Leading the program’s nationwide growth is the Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation, a pioneer in the creative place making movement. The Levitt Foundation exists to strengthen the social fabric of America and empowers communities to transform neglected outdoor spaces into welcoming destinations where the power of free, live music brings people together and invigorates community life.
