The Sacramento Recorder Society is a chapter of the American Recorder Society and an affiliate of the San Francisco Early Music Society. We welcome recorder players of all ages and abilities as well as players of other early music instruments such as lutes, viols, sackbuts, shawms, curtals, krummhorns, and percussion. We meet monthly September through June, from 6:45-9:30 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month, at the Friends Meeting House, 890 57th St., between H and J. We always welcome visitors to our meetings. Map
