Seattle Recorder Society (SRS) welcomes recorder and viol players and other early musicians (both new players and experienced) to attend monthly meetings for group playing, performances by local artists, refreshments, and conversation.

We generally meet the first Friday evening of the month at 7 p.m. (Occasionally we meet on the second Friday evening.) Recorders of all sizes are represented, from Sopranino to Contra Bass. We enjoy traditional music written for the recorder from the Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque eras, music from contemporary composers and everything in between. Please visit the Meetings & Members page for additional details and dates for our meetings.

SRS is an affiliate chapter of the American Recorder Society.

Covid Protocols

We offer a hybrid playing experience, with about 20 players in person at Maple Leaf Lutheran Church and others joining on Zoom.  Click below to learn about our safety protocols for those joining us in person.

Next meeting

Our next hybrid (in-person and online) Friday evening session is scheduled for April 14 at 7:00 at Maple Leaf Lutheran Church (find directions in the footer below).  Music Director Vicki Boeckman will lead the ensemble through Georg Philipp Telemann’s delightful Water Music (Wassermusik), celebrating the 300th anniversary of the event for which the piece was originally composed.  Also, as always at our April meeting, we will take a few minutes to officially elect our next president-elect; the board has nominated Nancy Bent for that position.

If you plan to attend in person, please remember to follow our Covid Protocols and contact Vicki ( to reserve your spot (we limit in-person attendance to 20).  If you want to participate in the Back Room Gang (led by Laura Townsend), please email Laura at
