Gala Lighting: The LA Philharmonic

The designers of the LA Philharmonic Annual Fundraiser at the Walt Disney Concert Hall always place an emphasis on color and style for their gala lighting. Working once again this year with Shiraz Events and a Casablanca theme, we used the clear top tent to our advantage, planning our lighting so that it bounces off the reflective surface creating and almost immersive lighting experience for the guests.

Lighting set the tone at the entrance of the event with tropical projections providing the “red carpet.” These were also woven into the interior decor with projections on the white dance floor. An overall pink wash over the tables with pinspots on the centerpieces gave the room a dreamy feeling. The stage and bar area by Revelry Event Designers were designed as tent tops. Our lighting in these areas was warm and glowing. In all, it was a night in which one could almost hear Sam singing the words, “you must remember this.” And surely the guests did.
