About Maple Street Concerts
Maple Street Concerts present our concerts in an all wood, American Gothic style chapel built in the 1870s that is on the National Registry of Historic Places. With an exciting line up of internationally known folk artists and the superior acoustics built into the architecture you have to come hear for yourself. The concert series helps bring funds in to maintain and preserve the historic Chapel; we are a 501(c)3 nonprofit, part of the Maple Street Chapel Preservation Society, Inc., with an all volunteer staff.
Location: We are located on the SW corner of Main & Maple Streets. Our mailing address is the same as the church that owns the Chapel, 220 S Main St (First Church of Lombard, UCC). Our GPS address is 200 S Main St. In general, the shared community/ medical lot (across the street to the north) can be used for parking (130 S Main Street): heed the signage. Or there is off street parking, etc.
Contact: Our unmanned info line (where you can also leave a message) is: 630-627-0171. This is generally checked once daily.
Origins: The concert series was started by Bryan Dagenhart, a member of the Maple Street Chapel Preservation Society, a 501(c)3 corporation, to help raise funds to maintain and preserve our historic venue. Today we are still meeting this goal as net proceeds go directly to fund the Chapel's needs.
