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 ever-changing nature of this virus has called for flexibility and patience from all of us. With the rise in cases due to the Delta variant, the CDC has issued new guidelines, and Governor Brown has issued a mandate that vaccinated and unvaccinated people alike, must wear masks indoors in public places. Therefore we will be meeting via Zoom, NOT in person for the remainder of 2021. Check back for 2022.
