About Us

The Hudson Mohawk Recorder Society (HMRS) is a Chapter of the American Recorder Society active since 1966. 

Currently we are co-sponsoring a series of virtual mini-workshops with the Recorder Society of Connecticut. We are also meeting monthly for in person playing sessions. Due to ongoing public health issues, playing sessions are limited to those fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and free of respiratory symptoms.

The meetings are casual and always enjoyable. The music is varied and includes traditional Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque pieces as well as more modern settings from composers such as Glen Shannon, Marg Hall and Will Ayton.

Harp, cornetto, crumhorn and viols are included at times. Percussion may be added for rhythm and interest. We strive to have an interesting mix of periods and styles choosing music suited to the skills and interests of the players. Each meeting is led by a chapter member or guest coach.

​​Recorder players of all abilities are welcome.
