The Chicago Chapter of Hamazkayin Armenian Educational and Cultural Society

The Chicago chapter was reorganized in 1981. In 1982, the chapter founded Levon Shant Theater Company, and in 1986 the Sardarabad Dance Troupe was founded. In 2002, the chapter founded its choir group. The chapter organizes literary, choir, theater, and dance performance events within the community. In the past two decades, the chapter has participated in a two-day exhibition at a pan-cultural festival.
