We promote the playing of the recorder among amateurs and professionals, and also encourage the playing of all early instruments such as viols, capped and open reeds, historical flute, lute and harpsichord.

What We Do

These are the things that recorder players do in Colorado:
• We use this website to find out what recorder activities are happening in Colorado and how to join in. The calendar is especially useful!
• Friends form groups, which play for their own enjoyment or for the public.
• ARS chapters hold monthly playing meetings, September through May, where people make new friends and start or join a playing group.
• ARS chapters welcome visitors and invite them to play along (even if they don’t hit all the right notes).
• We organize special “newbies” playing sessions where new players can get started.
• We encourage players of all ages.
• Small and large groups perform for the public during national “Play the Recorder Month” in March of each year.
• We publish a monthly newsletter that you can view or download at www.denverrecordersociety.org.
• We organize weekend workshops with special teachers from other parts of the country as we try to increase our skills.
• Some of us play recorders of all sizes and others only play one size, soprano, alto, tenor or bass.
• We use the Regis University library for music. Regis has a large and growing library of recorder music, available directly or through your local library. Here is information about how to access the library.
• Sometimes we just have a party with music!
