Northern Virginia Recorder Society

NVRS is a chapter of the American Recorder Society.  We get together to play music on recorders and related instruments.  The music ranges from medieval to contemporary.  Our skill levels range from beginner to advanced.  We meet about twice a month, and occasionally perform in public.  You're welcome to join us.

We meet on Sunday evenings of each month please check the calendar for the exact dates. We play from 6:30-8:30 P.M. The meeting place is 7617 Little River Turnpike, Suite 710, Annandale, Virginia  22003. 

We began our 2021-2022 season on June 20, 2021. We will socially distance and follow CDC guidelines for masks.

For more information, please email Ed Friedler, President of NVRS, at
