Consort Day

Each year, the Atlanta Chapter of the American Recorder Society celebrates Play the Recorder Month by hosting our very own Consort Day. This tradition began in 1996 as an opportunity for the various established ensembles in our community to play for an audience.

This year’s Consort Day will be a virtual event, broadcast live through the Zoom platform, on March 21st at 3 PM (eastern time). Soloists or ensembles may submit performances of works in either video or audio format. Submissions are due no later than Saturday, March 13, 2021.

Zoom links will be made available a few days before the Consort Day broadcast.

Performance guidelines:

    • Each complete performance may be no longer than 15 minutes in length.
    • Performances may be video or audio format.
    • Each tune must include at least one recorder.
    • Any talking, program notes, or explanations are included as part of the 15-minute limit.

Submission guidelines:
