Welcome to the Princeton Recorder Society! We promote the appreciation of the recorder as a musical instrument through performance and instruction. With over fifty members, we hold monthly playing sessions from September through May as well as a highly regarded, well-attended annual spring workshop, all coached by leading professionals. Workshop registration generally opens in January.

Come play with us! We welcome all playing levels! First time visitors, please come on by and try us out at no cost. Then if you like what you see (and hear), please come on back; we'll ask you to contribute $5 per session to help cover our costs.

Join us! By becoming a member, you help support PRS and will enjoy membership benefits: free attendance at our monthly playing sessions conducted by experts, newsletters, discounted annual workshop fee, and access to the extensive PRS music library.
