The Chicago Chapter is open to anyone, regardless of musical training, who wants to cultivate and sponsor love and appreciation of the art, history and use of the recorder and related instruments. Our meetings, programs and publications help members to come together and to find others with similar interests. Chicago Chapter memberships begin September 1 and payment is due in September. Chicago Chapter members may also join the national American Recorder Society, using the Chicago Chapter membership process, by paying the additional national ARS dues. Members are listed in the ARS directory, receive The American Recorder magazine and the Chicago newsletter. The Recorder Reporter is published monthly from September to May jointly by the Chicago Chapter and the West Suburban Early Music Society.
Chicago Chapter meetings are usually third Sunday of each month, September through May, 2 PM, at Covenant Presbyterian Church, 2012 West Dickens, Chicago. Consult this website home page or the current Chicago newsletter for more information on meetings.
