About LACA

Our mission is to bring the excitement of live classical music by world class artists to people of all ages in northern New Mexico.

The Los Alamos Concert Association (LACA) was formed in 1946 when the town was still a closed military base following the completion of the Manhattan Project during World War II.  The isolation of the town fostered a deep culture of volunteerism since the highly educated population of scientists, engineers and their families had to rely on their own ingenuity for recreation and entertainment. LACA has operated continuously ever since bringing world class artists to Los Alamos and Northern New Mexico.

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization run by an all-volunteer board under the guidance of a volunteer artistic director. Board members serve 4-year terms and must rotate off the board for at least a year before returning, though they can serve as non-voting associates while off the board.

If you are interested in serving on the LACA board, please email us on the Contact page or reach out to a board member. We welcome your participation.
