Join Us!

The East Bay Recorder Society (EBRS) is an association of recorder enthusiasts in the San Francisco Bay area. Recorder players from beginning to advanced levels are invited to join, to play music together and to learn more about the recorder with a different professional conductor each month (September-May or June). We have the new 2022/2023 season membership forms uploaded to our "Join Us!" page where you can either pay by check or use PayPal. But for your information, if you wish to attend for a first time as a non-member, it is free (with a $10 charge for additional monthly or special meetings thereafter until you join).


Monthly Playing

Our conductor locater, Rachel Bradley, has arranged all the conductors for our 2022/2023 season, which you can read on our "monthly" page. We began our season (for 2021/2022) on September 10th using Zoom. We had a wonderful hybrid session in December with a dozen or so attendees in person and about the same number on Zoom. By the time of our Members' Rectial we were able to gather in person, and did so again (at Zion) with a hybrid of in person and Zoom. Please visit our "Special events" page for the dates and descriptions of those special events scheduled for the upcoming 2022/2023 season.


We welcomed Glen as our May conductor for our last playing session of the 2021/2022 season, and he will lead us off for our September 9th first playing session of the 2022/2023 season!

Music for our monthly playing is routinely emailed to our membership in advance (as pdf’s).  When by Zoom please join the meeting a bit early if you can to enjoy a little socializing and to ensure that you get admitted before the music starts.
