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)
How Sweet It Is! Concert
How Sweet It Is! Tour. Well-known and loved Quaker musician and songleader Annie Patterson is coming to the Baltimore YM area! She will be holding a series of singalong concerts. Those present will have the chance to join her in singing songs of the heart from a wide variety of genres from folk to jazz standards, and from Beatles to Broadway. Annie is the co-creator (with her husband Peter Blood) of the songbooks Rise Up Singing and their 2015 sequel Rise Again. This is a great opportunity to celebrate what’s important to us during challenging times. For more information about these concerts go to: https://www.riseupandsing.org/events. Annie & Peter do their music work under the care of Mt Toby Monthly Meeting in New England Yearly Meeting. This concert is in collaboration with Valley Friends Meeting and will be at 292 North Liberty Street, Harrisonburg, Virginia.
