100 Years of Music: Trudy and the LA Phil

When Gertrude “Trudy” Lehrer came to the United States from Austria in 1938, a deep love of music helped her find her place in a new land. Today, at 100 years young, music remains as important to Trudy as ever.

Why We Give

After moving to Los Angeles in 1948, Reese and Doris Gothie became devoted fans and subscribers of the LA Phil. Following Reese's passing, Doris wished to honor his memory and ensure that future generations would continue to be inspired by the music that uplifted them throughout their lives. In 2001, Doris Gothie donated her home—retaining the right to live there for the rest of her life—and named the Fourth horn position in the orchestra the Reese and Doris Gothie Chair. Read more about the Gothie gift and other donor stories.
