A friend in the orchestra writes:

“This Sunday evening, a large group of Los Angeles Philharmonic musicians (about half of the orchestra, conducted by Gustavo Dudamel) are performing during the In Memoriam segment of the Oscars Show which is being broadcast live by ABC. It is not clear to me at this point how much screen time we are getting, but even if the TV audience will not see most of us for more than a few seconds, our playing should definitely be clearly heard by all listeners and viewers. Enjoy the show!”
