The Central Kentucky Concert and Lecture Association was formed in October, 1950 through the merger of two Lexington, Ky. civic organizations, the Central Kentucky Community Concert Association, founded in 1932, and the Lexington Public Forum, founded in 1935. Since its inception, the Association has generally presented four lectures and eight concerts each year on a subscription basis.
