Music to Excite the Imagination and Lift Your Spirits
The Highland Park Recorder Society (HPRS) is an educational not-for-profit organization founded in 1987 as a chapter of the American Recorder Society. HPRS fosters a love and appreciation of the art, history, literature and uses of the recorder to enhance public awareness of this early, easy-to-play woodwind instrument and raise the level of proficiency in performance.

The HPRS chooses repertory that showcases music from the Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque and current periods that reflect the highest levels that we can achieve. We offer members and friends the opportunity to find playing companions, increase musical skills and improve musicianship through regular ensemble playing. The ensemble usually meets the first and third Wednesday of the month. We welcome recorder players at every level of skill as well as players of string and wind instruments.
