Chicago Accordion Club

HISTORY   

   The Chicago Accordion Club originated in 1988, with formal Articles of Organization being adopted on July 24, 1989. The Club was incorporated as a 501(C) under the "General Not-For-Profit Act" of the State of Illinois on July 18, 1990. It was re-incorporated as an Illinois "Not-For-Profit" on February 4, 2009.

   The purpose of the non-profit Club has always been to stimulate a positive attitude towards the performance of music on the accordion by strengthening relationships with fellow musicians, expanding knowledge of the accordion and accordion playing, and developing a publicity program to acquaint the general public with the educational and entertainment values of the accordion.
