About (Monday) Evening Concerts (MEC) 
Founded in 1939, (Monday) Evening Concerts (MEC) is one of the longest-running series in the world devoted to contemporary music. MEC has gained international admiration for its presentation of music frequently new, sometimes old, and always uniquely stimulating.

Presenting the finest local and visiting artists, MEC is the place to hear adventurous new music in Los Angeles. (Monday) Evening Concerts is a seven-time national winner of the ASCAP/Chamber Music America Award for Adventurous Programming and is the subject of a full-length book entitled "Evenings On and Off the Roof," written by Dorothy Lamb Crawford.
