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).

Due to closures in the Spring of 2020, LAAC is providing extra performances for the 2020-2021 Brown Bag Season. With continuing concerns regarding social distancing, performances may be cancelled, or provided to the community through alternative means, such as a Facebook Live or YouTube Live concert. We thank you for your patience, and continued patronage of the Brown Bag Performance Series.
