There are many other wonderful ARS Chapters. Some are also doing virtual seasons, and inviting non-members to join and/or attend. As we research, we will begin adding them to this page so you can also take advantage of the additional offerings.
American Recorder Society
Most, if not all of you, are aware of our national Recorder Society or ARS. This is their Mission Statement:
The mission of the American Recorder Society is to promote the recorder and its music. Our goals are to be the organization every recorder player wants to join, and to support and grow the diverse recorder community by providing resources and opportunities on the social, educational, and professional levels. We envision a future in which the recorder and its music are enjoyed, valued and supported across generations, ethnicities and cultures.

They provide support to players, teachers, chapters and more on a normal basis. In this strange pandemic environment, they have added many additional resources for virtual lessons, workshops, technique videos and much more. Please check them out at the link above. Even better, please join!! Help support their efforts both now and in the future.
Portland Recorder Society
They have adapted to virtual social-distancing offers as well, with their own listing of options for playing during this time.
Eastern Connecticut Recorder Society. (ECRT)
THE current plan for 2021-2022 is to meet ON LINE VIA ZOOM for September, since the Forest and Parks Building in unavailable for September. We hope to return to "in person" for October, November and December. January and February will be "on-line" via Zoom and hopefully the rest of the year in person.
There is a special rate for those who want to attend the Zoom only sessions. ECRS Music Director Larry Zukof is lining up some wonderful coaches for our sessions.
Their January Zoom session with be a joint meeting of ECRS and the Denver Recorder Society, a group several of our members got to know last year. I am sure all of us will enjoy getting to know some like minded Recorder players.
