The Portland Recorder Society is a non-profit membership organization that promotes the pleasures of recorder playing. The recorder is a serious instrument with sizes and voices in every octave. Furthermore the recorder is a gateway to many forms of early to modern music and especially the delights of playing in social groups.

Portland Recorder Society members and guests play together monthly on the 1st Sunday of each month, with some exceptions (summer). Look here or check our newsletter to learn all the details each month, including links to the music to be played.
