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.

The Portland Recorder Society board is still in full swing and working hard to plan ahead for an unforeseeable future. While we have no concrete details at this time as to when and which PRS activities will be available, we are actively following the COVID situation, mandates and restrictions at the local and federal levels, as well as sensible planning when restrictions slowly begin to be lifted. The health and safety of our membership is our number one priority, and we are doing our best to keep our community active and involved during this unprecedented time. We are eagerly awaiting the restarting of PRS activities and will keep everyone updated as we are able to plan future activities safely. Thank you for your continued support and understanding as we work through this together!
