The Los Alamos Concert Association was formed in 1946, when the town was still a closed military base for the Manhattan Project, and has been bringing world class artists to Los Alamos ever since.
Many of the original Manhattan Project scientists and engineers were amateur musicians, and to this day Los Alamos has a high proportion of talented musicians and artists among its population, perhaps because of the large number of scientists and engineers living and working here.
