The Aeolus Recorder Konsort is a chapter of the American Recorder Society.

American Recorder Society

The mission of the American Recorder Society is to promote the recorder and its music by developing resources and standards to help people of all ages and ability levels to play and study the recorder, to present the instrument to new constituencies, to encourage increased career opportunities for professional recorder performers and teachers, and to enable and support recorder playing as a shared social experience.  Society members gather and play together at chapter meetings, weekend and summer workshops, and many ARS-sponsored events throughout the year.

Here is an example of a family in Little Rock playing recorders for their personal enjoyment:

The American Recorder Society publishes a journal, the American Recorder, a newsletter, a personal study program, a directory, and special music editions.
