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. Meanwhile, if you have not yet renewed your PRS membership, don’t wait!

Survey Results for In-Person Playing
Thank you to those who answered to our survey (28 responses) for holding in-person playing sessions in the 2022-23 season. Fully 43% of those who answered said yes they are ready to play in-person with their vaccinations. Only 4% said No and 18% said not sure. The remaining 36% were out of town and could not physically attend. So as we are just putting our fall dates together, we are encouraged to move ahead with in-person playing sessions in a new venue with improved parking and social distancing space. We hope all the concerned, busy and reluctant people will be able to join us!
