The Walt Disney Concert Hall stage didn't look so hot for Tuesday night's Green Umbrella concert. Rather than the trademark umbrellas being gracefully suspended from the ceiling, they were placed in clumps, like lean-tos, on either side of a stage and so saturated with green light that they appeared covered with AstroTurf. Then again, the Los Angeles Philharmonic may simply be packing early for its upcoming tour and wanted to have those umbrellas handy. This was a showcase concert of the orchestra's New Music Group, and it will be repeated in London the week after next.
