The Atlanta Recorder Society’s mission is to promote recorder playing in the metro Atlanta area through information about upcoming events, opportunities for group playing, connecting recorder players in the area, concerts, workshops, and other opportunities.

We normally meet monthly, usually on the 3rd Sunday of the month (but check our calendar for possible date changes) for a 2 hour playing session. Playing sessions are held at Morningside Presbyterian Church, Room 201, located at 1411 North Morningside Dr, Atlanta, GA 30306, from 3:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m ET. We generally ask that you print your own music, and please bring your own instrument(s) and music stand.

Scheduled events for the 2024 season are:

    • Sunday, February 18th: in-person playing session
    • Sunday, March 17th: Consort Day (see the Consort Day tab above)
    • Sunday, April 21st: Zoom session with Tom Sears
    • Sunday, May 19th:  Zoom session with Claudia Gantivar
    • June & July: no meetings – go to Mountain Collegium!
    • Sunday, August 18th: Zoom session with Sarah Jeffery
    • Sunday, September 15th: in-person playing session
    • Sunday, October 20th: Zoom session with Annette Bauer
    • Sunday November 17th: in-person playing session with Jody Miller
    • Sunday December 15th: in-person Holiday playing session

In celebration of March being “Play the Recorder Month” instead of a playing session we host our annual Consort Day.  Consort Day is an opportunity for individuals and small groups of musicians to gather together to play and hear each other’s accomplishments.
