Desert Pipes is the Phoenix Chapter of the ARS. We currently have around two dozen members of all ages. Chapter activities include monthly meetings and rehearsals.
We sponsor workshops given by leading recorder teachers and performers (see our photos page for just a few examples).
The 18th Annual Prescott Workshop will be held August 17-18, 2019. Click here for more details.
Our repertoire for monthly playing sessions includes a variety of styles, eras, and arrangements starting at an intermediate level, but we have resources for players of all levels of ability.
Membership fee, per calendar year, is $60 for members of the American Recorder Society and $70 for others, or $8 per meeting for part-year residents or drop-ins. There is no charge for your first meeting, so come try us out.
Many of our members have their own performing groups, so it is a great opportunity for networking with fellow musicians.
