What is this again?
The Listening Club is a small, private social club in Chicago, IL. We foster social connections between members of Chicago’s diverse contemporary music community. We are music lovers and we believe in listening - the act of intentionally hearing. Our clubhouse and events create space for the discussion, analysis, and performance of new works of music. Our physical space is a platform for creativity in audible forms. We promote principles of artistic expression, experimentation, and collaboration through open communication. Our supportive and collaborative environment promotes fellowship between club members.
What do I get for my membership dues?
Membership in The Listening Club is not a product, a service, or an experience. By joining you agree to become an active participant in the collaborative creation of this space. We have no paid staff, and everyone is asked to contribute. Membership dues help support the existence of the club and all of its activities. As a member you will be invited to attend all of our planned and impromptu events and to participate in creating the club’s events. We are a community, not a group of customers.
Are my donations tax deductible?
No. The Listening Club is a 501(c)7 which means that we are a non-profit organization organized for social purposes. You cannot deduct your donations or dues.
How do I become a member?
Send us an email, apply, and meet us! Make sure to include something about yourself, why you want to join, and times when you are available. We will then send you an application for membership and inform you about prospective member events.
How do I host an event?
Members who have been a part of the club for awhile may petition the Board to host an event. Ask a Board member to learn more. Please note that currently all of our events must be members-only.
Do I need to be vaccinated against Covid-19 to be a member of the club?
Yes. All members must present proof of vaccination and a photo ID to a Board member before their sign up is complete.
