The Arlingtones chapter of The Barbershop Harmony Society (formerly
known as SPEBSQSA) received its charter in 1952, over half a century ago. It became one of the largest barbershop choruses
in Illinois, peaking in 1976 at 134 members. Several members from that time are still with us. With the formation
of new clubs, the dissolution of old clubs, and the increasing mobility of society in general, our membership has waxed and
waned. Currently we have about 25 ‘hard core’ members. We would like to rebuild to about
40 enthusiastic members who enjoy singing four part a cappella music and the camaraderie of a compatible group.
hope you are. If you are, please feel welcome to attend our practices and our ‘afterglow’.
We meet each Monday night at 7:00 PM. Meetings except for the second Monday of each month are held at the American
Legion Hall, 121 North Douglas (on the corner of Douglas and Miner Streets), in Arlington Heights. On the second
Monday, we meet at the Grace Lutheran Church 1624 E. Euclid Ave. Mt. Prospect (Northwest corner of Euclid and Wolf Rd.) Park
in the back lot and use back door. (See map links below for locations.)
