The Southern California Recorder Society is an organization for recorder enthusiasts in the greater Los Angeles area. Recorder players from beginning to advanced levels are invited to join. We meet the first Saturday of the month from September through June to play the recorder and to learn, under a different conductor each month, about renaissance and baroque music.

A Message from the President

Dear SCRS,


Our last meeting is almost here! I'd like to close our 2022-2023 season with a silent auction to benefit SCRS. Helene and Quentin Pizzini are bringing several instruments that belonged to Kathryn Black, who, it seems, was an SCRS member a number of years ago. The list of instruments consists of two wooden sopranos, a Moeck alto, a Moeck tenor, a Kung bass, and a plastic Yamaha tenor, all of them in very good condition.

If you have an item that you would like to donate to be auctioned, please let me know and bring it with you on June 3rd.  It can be anything, not necessarily a musical instrument, like music scores, old magazines, or handcrafted art. All the proceedings will go to benefit SCRS. As you know, SCRS's membership fees has remained the same at $55 for a few years now, and the board would like to keep it that way for as long as possible. So please remember to bring your checkbooks or cash!


I need two or three volunteer members to bring a food item for the refreshment break. If you haven't done so already, this is the best time! 


Looking forward to seeing all of you on Saturday, June 3rd!
