A Whittier tradition for many years, the Whittier Nights at the Hollywood Bowl program has become a popular summer event where groups and organizations, families and individuals fill the buses without having to worry about freeway traffic or parking. For those who love the Bowl in the summer, but hate the traffic, Whittier Nights at the Hollywood Bowl is the answer.
This year, the Hollywood Bowl Committee has selected two concerts sure to please the whole community. The Tchaikovsky Spectacular with FIREWORKS features the Los Angeles Philharmonic Conductor Christian Knapp and the USC Marching Band. John Williams and the Music of the Movies will have memorable scores and his dynamic use of the orchestra will make movie audiences cheer, bring them to tears, and keep them on the edge of their seats.
