In September 1941, a group of culturally-minded Altonians orchestrated a plan to bring professional musicians, dancers and theater to enrich the aesthetic spirit of Alton and its surrounding communities. The Alton Concert Association was founded.
The first season included the Von Trapp Family Singers, of The Sound of Music fame. The sold-out performance underscored the Association’s belief that high quality artistic performances are indeed an important building block for a growing community.
When Hatheway Hall (now Hatheway Cultural Center) was constructed at Monticello College in 1968, the Alton Concert Association began a duet with the College, becoming the Alton–Monticello Concert Association.
1970 was a year of change. Monticello College became Lewis and Clark Community College in and the Association became known as the Greater Alton Concert Association (GACA). Lewis and Clark Community College maintains a close relationship with GACA to this day.
In order to facilitate individual and corporate sponsorships, GACA became a foundation in 1999. The GACA Foundation is a 501 (c) (3), volunteer led, not-for-profit organization. Members of our Board of Directors contribute time, money and service to help the organization fulfill its artistic mission.
