The orchestra were six minutes into the performance when the concert hall was hit by a strong jolt, followed by 60 seconds of rumbling - sending the lights to violently sway and several audience members to race for the doors.
Guest Conductor Charles Dutoit, a consummate professional, did not unhinge the orchestra – continuing unrattled.
The 5.1 La Habra earthquake caused more than $2 Million in damages to LA's Orange County district.
