The Los Angeles Lawyers Philharmonic was created by Founder-Conductor Gary S. Greene, Esq. to bring the legal community together. The orchestra held its first rehearsal on January 19, 2009, with 30 legal musicians and Maestro Greene on the podium. They performed their debut concert 11 days later. Since then, the orchestra has grown to 75 members.
Proclaimed by the City of Los Angeles as “LA’s Only Legal Orchestra,” the LA Lawyers Phil is where lawyers, judges, law students and legal staff meet in harmony. The members include conservatory graduates, professional musicians and some hobbyists who are dusting off instruments they played in their youth. It is the music that prevails. The orchestra has performed more than 40 concerts, raising thousands of dollars to benefit those who cannot afford legal services and for other charitable causes. The LA Lawyers Phil performs on a professional level in major concert venues including Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, the Saban Theatre, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences’ Samuel Goldwyn Theater, Greystone Mansion and the Shrine Auditorium.
