Local Chapters

Local Chapters are a great way to get involved with the LSA, have your voice heard, try something new, or meet others in your area. They are a support system and community where lute enthusiasts can share information and have fun together. Check the list below to find out if there is an LSA Chapter near you! To join, simply email the contact listed for your Local Chapter. You do not need to be an LSA member to join a Chapter!

If you are interested in starting a local chapter, please email chapters@lutesocietyofamerica.org.
