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.
