Vandoren has officially opened doors to the new Vandoren Musician’s Advisory Studio in Chicago.

The grand opening was on September 20 with numerous local artists and teachers in attendance including John Yeh, Teresa Reilly, Ernest Dawkins, Rose Sperrazza, David Tuttle, Michael Holmes and more. After years of success at the NYC studio and a successful launch of the LA studio in January of this year, Vandoren is very excited to provide Chicago musicians with a space to rehearse, hang out, and try out all that Vandoren has to offer.

“This is simply an extension of the Vandoren philosophy,” said DANSR president Michael Skinner. “Staying close to the musician has always been our principal objective. Not only can these studios be used by any clarinetist or saxophonist for trial purposes, but it serves as a great research base for us. Some of our best products have come from the hundreds of musicians we see at our studios.”

Stocked with the complete line of Vandoren products, the Chicago studio is open to all players, teachers, and students who are interested in finding the perfect setup. It is located at 818 W Evergreen, Chicago, IL 60642. Those interested in setting up an appointment can contact one of the studio advisors at
