Welcome! We hope you’ll join us soon in convivial music-making.
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). Please go to our "Join Us!" page for our membership form.

Play with us!
Our first monthly playing session for the new year of 2015 will be Saturday, January 3 (our annual 12th Night Celebration) at Hillside Community Church, 1422 Navellier in El Cerrito. We’ll play from 2:30 pm to 5:00 or 5:30 and then socialize over a potluck dinner. Our conductor will be Shira Kammen.
Shira Kammen received her degree in music from UC Berkeley and studied vielle with Margriet Tindemans. She has been a member for many years with a variety of ensembles.
Some of us may have listened to Shira’s “fiddling” in Christmas Revels productions in Oakland. Shira now also plays harp as a "Muse" with Healing Muses, a local non-profit which brings live, professional quality, soothing music to medical and care faciltities throughout the SF Bay Area to support patient care.
