    The Los Angeles Philharmonic has announced its 2018–19 concert season—its centennial season—and among the artists joining the orchestra to perform this season at Walt Disney Concert Hall are John Adams and Audra McDonald. The LA Phil will also give the world premiere of new works by Adams, Steve Reich, and Louis Andriessen.

    John Adams, the Creative Chair of the LA Phil, will lead the group in performances of his own Grand Pianola Music paired with the world premiere of Philip Glass's Symphony No. 12, Lodger, from the music of David Bowie and Brian Eno, an LA Phil commission, on January 10, 11, and 13, 2019. Adams returns later in the season to lead the LA Phil New Music Group and Mivos String Quartet in a program of five world premieres, including a new work by Donnacha Dennehy, closing out the Green Umbrella series for the season on June 1.

    Adams's newest piano concerto, Must the Devil Have All the Good Tunes?, an LA Phil commission, will receive its world premiere in performances, paired with Mahler's First, by the orchestra led by Gustavo Dudamel, on March 7–10, 2019. Adams's music will be featured in the season's Opening Night Concert & Gala, titled California Soul, on Thursday, September 27.

    Audra McDonald will join the LA Phil led by conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen for a program titled The Weimar Republic, featuring cabarets selections from the era, Hindemith's Hin und zurück, and Weill's The Seven Deadly Sins, on April 26–28.

    The Los Angeles Philharmonic will also give the world premiere performances of three pieces it commissioned: Steve Reich's Music for Ensemble and Orchestra, paired with Mahler's Fifth Symphony, November 1–4, 2018, and Louis Andriessen's The only one, with music by Mozart and Beethoven, May 2–5, 2019.

    Vagabon (aka Lætitia Tamko) has released a video for "Every Woman," a new song from her upcoming album, directed by Lino Asana and filmed on location in Mendocino County, CA. You can watch it here. "'Every Woman' is the thesis of my album," she says, "so I wanted the visuals to represent transparency and to create a world for this thesis statement to live inside of. It's an ode to all those who feel different and who actively search and fight for space." Vagabon begins a fall tour this week.
