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

During the pandemic we initially offered playing sessions over Zoom. Since infection rates have come down, we are offering a hybrid playing experience, with about 20 players in person at Maple Leaf Lutheran Church and others joining on Zoom.
