The 2023 Convention Committee carefully considered many venues to attend for the 65th Annual ATOS Convention. Despite our best efforts, there remain a few venues that we unfortunately won’t be able to access due to scheduling issues, transportation logistics, rental/staff costs and other situations out of our control; these include the Chicago Theatre, Aragon Ballroom, Pickwick Theatre and Downers Grove North High School. With an effort to keep prices affordable to attendees, the focus was put on organizing a fun-filled, easy travel week of wonderful theatre organs, including the chance to hear some of the world-class instruments in the greater Chicagoland area.
