Classical music collectors will again converge on the Chicago Metro area in May to buy, sell and trade both rarities and bargains at the Midwest Classical Record Show. The show will take place from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 19 at the Holiday Inn Chicago North Shore, 5300 W. Touhy Ave., Skokie, IL.

This is the 25th anniversary of the show, and several dealers will be bringing a wide variety of classical music.

"I've got vintage audiophile LPs, high-grade import CDs from Japan and a ton of sealed classical records from the 1970s and 80s," said Steve Young, proprietor of Record Wonderland, one music dealer participating in the show. "I'm also going to have hundreds of very nice records selling at just $1 each. I've been saving up great material all year for this event, but I also bring a fair amount of cash as I know the other dealers will have some fabulous thing I need to get for my own collection"

In previous shows, dealers arrived with a wide array of music, most classical-related, though some dealers bring other genres as well.

"Whether you are looking for baroque or avant-garde, or anything in between, it will be there," said Bob Craig, a show organizer who will also be selling records at the event. "It only happens once a year, so anyone who loves classical music will not want to miss it."
