Dorothy B. Chandler Legacy Society

The Dorothy B. Chandler Legacy Society honors and recognizes the generous individuals who have made a legacy commitment to furthering the arts in Los Angeles through The Music Center.

When the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion opened in 1964 on The Music Center campus, Mrs. Chandler knew she was taking the first step in harnessing the transformative power of the arts to impact generations of Los Angeles County residents. The arts campus has since expanded to four world-renowned resident companies - Center Theatre Group, LA Phil, LA Opera, Master Chorale and Glorya Kaufman Presents Dance at The Music Center. Today, each company performs across five venues that not only serve tens of thousands of residents annually, but reach tens of thousands more each year through arts education and free to low-cost community programs.

Whether you are a dance season subscriber, a school teacher who has benefitted from our arts education professional development program, or your child was entertained by one of our many free school assemblies, you support the arts because you know it made a difference in your life.

Imagine the impact your legacy gift can make on others! By becoming a member of the Dorothy B. Chandler Legacy Society, you are furthering the arts in Los Angeles and the arts impact generations to come.
