The ECA Executive Committee has recently approved two upcoming events that you are sure to enjoy!  The events are in lieu of the Holiday Party, as the Executive Committee is giving a nostalgic nod to the event format of year's past.  This format may be repeated next cycle depending on feedback. The first event is the ECA Holiday Luncheon, which will be held on Thursday, December 14, 2017 at the Drake Oak Brook Hotel, Oak Brook, Illinois.  A unique guest speaker, entertainment along with a wonderful meal will be provided.  Registration information will be forwarded in early Fall; however, this event will be open for up to five representatives of ECA member firms.

The second event is the ECA President's Party, which will be held on Saturday, June 23, 2018 at the Sanfilippo Estate in Barrington, Illinois. The Sanfilippo "Place de la Musique" is known worldwide for its magnificent collections of beautifully restored antique music machines, phonographs, arcade and gambling machines, chandeliers, art glass, the world's largest restored theatre pipe organ, the most spectacular European salon carousel in existence, street and tower clocks, steam engines and other functional mechanical antiques, displayed within a breathtaking French Second Empire setting.

The primary motive behind this collection is the preservation and sharing of the experience of these marvelous inventions of the Western World.  The Place de la Musique contains the largest collection of restored automatic musical instruments in the world, including:

  • music boxes and phonographs
  • coin-operated pianos
  • violin machines
  • photoplayers
  • American and European orchestrions
  • dance organs
  • fairground and band organs and calliopes
