Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame
OPENING NIGHT CONCERTS
For 15 consecutive years, Baruch/Gayton created and produced the “Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame Opening Night Concert” on behalf of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association.
These annual concerts have inducted more than 40 world-renowned artists into the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame, ranging from Garth Brooks to Stevie Wonder to Placido Domingo to John Williams to Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith to Kristin Chenoweth to Reba McEntire, raising millions of dollars for the LA Philharmonic and its music education programs.
Other past inductees include Carlos Santana, B.B. King, John Legend, Liza Minnelli, Roger Daltrey of The Who, Josh Groban, and Bernadette Peters; and hosts have included Sir Anthony Hopkins, Dame Helen Mirren, Charlize Theron and Jack Black.
The Los Angeles Times described the “Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame Opening Concerts” as “feats of production imagination.” The Hollywood Reporter noted: “Some Enchanted Evening… a model for that industry standby, the awards night.”
