An Interview with Jonathan Hepfer of Monday Evening Concerts

Source: Passion of the Weiss.

Tickets at Monday Evening Concerts, one of the longest running modern classical music series in the world, which started in L.A. in the late 30’s, that Hepfer now curates, conducts, and often performs in, is held in Zipper Hall at the Colburn School. A beautiful medium sized concert hall in one of L.A.’s only music conservatories. Prices are low compared to other classical music shows across the city, and through Hepfer’s network, the shows have begun to attract a younger, hipper, audience than the tenured professors or retired rich and white charter school magnates that usually constitute the audiences of classical music shows.
