The Hudson Mohawk Recorder Society (HMRS) is a Chapter of the American Recorder Society. We are a diverse group of recorder players at all skill levels and the group has been active for many years.
We meet twice a month at the historic Pruyn House in Colonie. The House at 207 Old Niskayuna Road is centrally located in the Capital District and is easily accessible from major highways.
The meetings are casual and always enjoyable. The music is varied and includes traditional Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque pieces as well as more modern settings from composers such as Glen Shannon and Will Ayton.
Harp, cornetto, crumhorn and viols are included at times. Percussion may be added for rhythm and interest. We strive to have an interesting mix of periods and styles choosing music suited to the skills and interests of the players. Each meeting is led by a different member or conducted by guest coaches and directors.
We are always looking for new members and encourage people of all abilities to attend. Come, join in, bring your recorder, or other period instrument, and enjoy a pleasant evening of music making.
