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. We will have copies of music to play from, but please bring your own instrument(s) and a music stand.

Due to COVID-19, we now meet on-line (via Zoom). Scheduled events for the rest of the year:

    • Sunday, September 20 (3:00 to 5:00 eastern time), guest leader is Anne Timberlake (members only)
    • Sunday, October 18 (3:00 to 5:00 eastern time), guest leader is Gwyn Roberts (members only)
    • Sunday, November 15  (3:00 to 5:00 eastern time), guest leader is Tish Berlin (members only)
    • Sunday, December 20  (3:00 to 4:30 eastern time), our own Jody Miller with music of the season. Invite a friend to join us- this session is open to members and non-members alike! Register by sending an e-mail to info@ars.atlema.org

Each meeting (except December) will have a short (20-25 minute) session with Jody Miller, followed by a guest leader.

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.
