Special Statement of Inclusion


The ARS has an overarching goal: to build a strong, vital and inclusive community of recorder players with membership from many different ethnic, socio-economic, racial, and educational backgrounds. We support an inclusive environment, denounce racism and are proud to welcome everyone to our membership, as well as to all our affiliated groups. We pledge to create and maintain an environment where each member feels embraced as an integral part of the blended music that we all make together as a community.
