Established in 1947, the Los Gatos Community Concert Association was affiliated with Community Concerts, Inc. in New York City. Motivated by the mission "to bring artists and audiences together," Community Concerts provided a refined network of artists and promoters which enabled local associations such as ours to present top entertainers at reasonable prices for the cultural enrichment of their members.
In 1993, Community Concerts restructured its relationship with Columbia Artists Management, Inc., its longtime parent company, and in 1999, Trawick Artists Management purchased the company and continued to provide national leadership until its demise in 2002. When the opportunity for an affiliation with Live On Stage, LLC presented itself in the spring of 2003, the Los Gatos Community Concert Association emerged with the determination to continue the tradition of bringing quality entertainment at reasonable prices to the people in the West Valley Area. In order to more accurately reflect the world class artists featured in our concert series, in 2020 the Los Gatos Community Concert Association modified its name to Los Gatos Concert Series for marketing purposes.
