A residency for up to 6 weeks offered to professional recorder musicians.

Application deadline: April 17, 2018 (for 2019)

Residency Provides:

  • Uninterrupted time to focus on musical expression
  • Opportunity to live among a small group of resident artists, ecologists, and writers
  • A private residence and workspace in a tranquil setting on the Oregon coast, adjacent to Cascade Head Scenic Research Area, the Salmon River Estuary, the Salmon River Estuary, and Cascade Head Experimental Forest


Members of the Oregon Coast Recorder Society have raised $103,000 to establish a recorder residency at Sitka, beginning in 2003. 

To be eligible for the residency, applicants are required to earn part of their income from recorder performance or composition. This is to indicate that applicants should have a degree of professionalism, and people at the beginning of a career are as welcome as mature artists. 

Residencies are 4 – 6 weeks in length, and living space and a studio are provided. Past residents have taught three-day workshops (as part of the annual spring Oregon Coast Recorder Society Workshop at the Sitka Center) and given concerts in the community.

This residency is typically by invitation although sometimes we conduct an open call for applications. The 2017 and 2018 Recorder Residencies have already been filled. It's worth calling the office to check on the application status of the recorder residency program. 541-994-5485

A grant from ARS is also available:
