Brown Bag Performance Series

Always free, always entertaining! Take a lunch break at the very popular Brown Bag Performance series in Fuller Lodge.  Presenting a wide range of programs, from Beethoven to ballet, opera to jazz, chamber music to bagpipes, these concerts have been entertaining Los Alamos music lovers on their midday breaks since 1973.  You will love the variety this series presents! Brown Bag Performances help to connect the community.  Performances are held at 12 pm on the first Wednesday of each month (unless otherwise noted).
