Join Us!

The Theater Musicians Association - an official AFM Player Conference - was formed to organize theater musicians throughout the United States and Canada (full-time, part-time, local and traveling), so that we will be better equipped to address the issues that are common to all of us including wages, working conditions, replacement by recordings or electronics and non-union productions.

The Chicago Area Chapter was formed to unite Chicago area theater musicians so that we will be better prepared to identify our professional needs in accordance with the standards of the industry and assist the Chicago Federation of Musicians with the negotiation of theater collective bargaining agreements.

Your yearly dues include membership in the TMA National and the Chicago Area Chapter. You will also receive subscriptions to The Pit Bulletin (the National newsletter of TMA) and our chapter's Newsletter. Your membership fees will help provide the necessary funds for operating expenses such as printing, postage, communications, bank and legal fees as well as sponsorship of the annual TMA International Conference.

You are encouraged to join the TMA and support an organization which will do much to protect and improve a vital area of employment for musicians.
