Stars Julie Andrews, Jane Fonda and William Shatner were among the celebrities who graced the red carpet in Los Angeles on Monday (September 30) to celebrate the Walt Disney Concert Hall's 10 Year Anniversary. The evening itself truly honors the vision of Frank Gehry, the architect behind the modern, yet timeless design that almost immediately earned its place among the city's iconic landmarks. SOUNDBITE Jane Fonda saying (English): "Now, I am just on the outside to start with and I was playing down at the theater for a few years ago and I used to love to walk by and just look at it. It is just breathtaking. And the sound is magnificent." Monday's celebration also included performances by music director Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic. SOUNDBITE Gustavo Dudamel saying (English): "I am really happy to have a place, an instrument, because this is an instrument, thanks Frank Gehry," said Dudamel. "He is the creator, the genius of this. I am very happy to be here." The Walt Disney Concert Hall, which has earned strong praise since it opened in October 2003, is the home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestra.
