A little bit about our
Society of Northern Illinois (DSNI) was created to further the
playing and appreciation of both mountain (fretted) and hammered
dulcimers, though we welcome players of all acoustic instruments.
Our meetings provide opportunities to make music and socialize
with a diverse group of other players and guest musicians.
Our goal is to increase our individual
musical knowledge, playing skills and pleasure. For those who wish, club
activities can also provide opportunities to develop or improve teaching
or performing abilities.
At two meetings each year we feature
mini-concerts and workshops led by professional musicians. There is a
modest charge to attend these events, $20 for members, $30 for
We meet one Sunday afternoon per month, 8
times per season. We've put together an exciting program for this season! Check out our
schedule for detailed information.
We meet at:
7574 North Lincoln Avenue, Skokie, IL. Please Note: This is not
our mailing address.

Dues are $25 per program year. There is no
prerequisite for joining. Programs are geared to all skill levels and
represent many styles of playing. We encourage beginners to attend as
members are in all stages of competency. A dulcimer may be available for guests to play if they do not come with an
instrument of their own. Contact us to reserve an instrument.
Standard music notation, mountain dulcimer
chord designations are provided so all can participate.
