Why Join?

Make music with others.

Solo playing can be fun, but making music with a group can’t be beat. HMRS offers members two meetings a month, September through May.

Life-long learning.

HMRS membership affords an excellent opportunity for life-long learning through study and performance of music and its history, forms and composers from an extensive variety of genres.

Musical skills development in a group setting.

Members with all levels of musical experience are welcome. Those with long-dormant instrumental training during early education can reawaken those skills. Those with more extensive training are encouraged to lead sessions and work with those who may be playing a musical instrument for the first time.

Networking among acquaintances with similar cultural interests.

Meet interesting individuals who have a love of music and connections to the local and regional music “scene” and organizations.

Opportunities to work with informative and challenging musical leaders.

Expand your musical knowledge and skills by exposure to invited session leaders with special knowledge of certain musical types, traditions or regional cultures. Meet and study with nationally and internationally recognized clinicians at annual all-day workshops.

Opportunities to contribute to community cultural outreach.

Join a group that forms to inform and entertain members of the community.

Options for public musical performance.

Meet potential members interested in formally creating a performance group.

Access to an extensive library of sheet music.

Explore and borrow items from among thousands of cataloged pieces in the HMRS Library, available only to HMRS members.
