GOOD NEWS FOR MUSIC IN AMERICA: Gustavo Dudamel And Youth Orchestra L.A. To Perform At Super Bowl Halftime. ”
Dudamel said that ‘this is a wonderful honor and an extraordinary showcase for YOLA, as well as a tribute to youth orchestras worldwide. When we play, it will be for the youth of the world so they can be inspired to create both a better life for themselves and a better future.‘”
Coldplay will be headlining the show, which will also feature performances by Beyoncé and Bruno Mars. While I doubt they will be given much air time (or be asked to play anything very artistically substantial), it’s good press. Last year’s halftime show had over 118.5 million U.S. viewers.
