MISSION

The mission of the Highland Park Recorder Society since it was founded in 1987 is to strengthen local instrumentalists’ artistry and enhance public awareness of the richness and beauty of early music, within our immediate community, and beyond it, as a chapter of the American Recorder Society, Early Music America (EMA) and the Guild for Early Music (GEM) -- a consortium of early-music presenters in Central New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania.
