The Comfort Station is closed during the winter months so we will be at a new venue for December, January and February: Covenant Presbyterian Church, 2012 W Dickens Ave, Chicago, IL 60647
If you are driving, the church is a short distance from the Armitage and Damen exits off of I-90. There is free parking available in the lot behind the church building, accessible on W Charleston St. For commuters, the church is about a half mile away from both the Clybourn Metra stop and the Damen and Western Blue Line stops.
We sing every 2nd Tuesday of the month from 7-9pm (except that in January it will be the 3rd Tuesday). We use the 1991 Denson revision of the Sacred Harp, and loaner books are available. Everyone is welcome, regardless of background and experience. There will be a short mid-sing break for snacks and socializing. We hope to see you there!
