The “75th Anniversary of the Los Alamos Concert Association” exhibit closes Saturday, June 19 in Step Up Gallery at Mesa Public Library, 2400 Central Ave.
Since 1946, Los Alamos Concert Association (LACA) has presented an annual classical concert series featuring world-class artists. Visitors to the &5th anniversary exhibit can walk back in time to the organization’s inception through a series of decade-by-decade panels that describe LACA’s history and the artists it has presented.
An audio tour is available to hear a sampling of featured artists’ music.
The exhibit includes material related to LACA’s community and school outreach activities plus a look at the volunteers and community partners working behind the scenes to bring great music to Los Alamos.
