Oscar, Golden Globe and Emmy-winning actress Dame Helen Mirren hosted Opening Night at the Hollywood Bowl, kicking off the Bowl's 90th season and featuring the 12th annual Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame ceremony, Friday, June 17, at 8:30 p.m. The evening offered the induction of Grammy and Emmy-winning singer/musician/actor Harry Connick, Jr., and seven-time Grammy-winning pop music superstar Gloria Estefan into the Hall of Fame.  Additional evening highlights included an exclusive sneak preview of Cirque du Soleil's first resident production in Los Angeles, IRIS - A Journey Through the World of Cinema, two-time Academy Award-winning actress Hilary Swank presenting the Hall of Fame award to Connick Jr., and a performance by the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra led by Principal Guest Conductor Thomas Wilkins. 

Proceeds from the evening benefit the LA Phil and its music education programs, which reach more than 120,000 children, teachers and adults every year.

Established in 2000, the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame identifies and pays tribute to artists whose unique achievements embody the spirit of the world-renowned Hollywood Bowl. The Hall of Fame is now part of an exhibit on the main floor of the Hollywood Bowl Museum that includes photos and film of inductees over the years. The Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame was conceived on behalf of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association by Wayne Baruch and Charles F. Gayton, who have created and produced all 12 Hall of Fame opening concerts.
