Baltimore Yearly Meeting is the regional organizing unit for the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in the area of central Pennsylvania, Maryland, parts of West Virginia, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. It is through membership in a Yearly Meeting that individual Quakers become connected with the larger Quaker movement worldwide. "In fellowship, in deep listening, in waiting worship, in commitment to each other, it richly rewards those who embrace the challenge of being a Yearly Meeting Friend." (2011 draft Faith and Practice)

Third Annual SBP Memorial Concert
Sandy Spring Friends School is delighted to present the third annual SBP Memorial Concert, held in honor and memory of Nan Schwarz Pricher '67 and Jane Schwarz Binger on Friday, May 12 at 7:15pm. This year's SBP Memorial Concert features Sonic Escape, founded by Shawn Wyckoff and Maria Kaneko Millar in 2009. Armed with flute & violin, their game plan—use hyper-instrumentals to fill hearts with indescribable joy—has landed them on hundreds of stages across 38 North American states, provinces and beyond! Maria and Shawn push themselves to the brink—singing, dancing, telling stories, and above all, playing their hearts out with a "wonderfully imaginative…anything goes sense of fun." (The Washington Post) Shawn and Maria have galvanized audiences at Lincoln Center, Chautauqua Institution, Kennedy Center, Radio City Music Hall, The Gershwin Theatre on Broadway, and Carnegie Hall. Their workshops and residencies have empowered students from Iqaluit, Nunavut down to Montgomery, Alabama and even their alma mater, The Juilliard School. Sonic Escape's latest offering—Speak like the Star You Are—transforms decades of stage-tested chops into a motivational performance/talk on public speaking. No tickets necessary.
