The Quaker Women’s A Capella Choir invites you to a Friendly Sing on Saturday, April 8th from 10 am to 3 pm in the meetinghouse. F/friends from all over BYM are invited to join our singing leader, Ruth Fitz, for a day of singing. We will break at noon for a meal so please bring a bag lunch. Drinks and dessert will be provided. Please let us know if you need childcare by emailing the names and ages of your children to Diane Bowden at by Wednesday, April 5th. Contact for overnight hospitality.

Strong and shy singers are welcome to join this circle of F/friends singing rounds, sacred chants, spirituals, peace songs, hymns, and fun songs. We will sing together to energize our bodies and nurture our souls, with music that affirms our diversity, reflects our beauty, and celebrates our unity.

No singing or music reading experience is necessary to participate, just a willing spirit and a desire to sing.

Ruth Fitz has a BA in Music. She carries an embraced ministry of music from York Monthly Meeting since 2013. Ruth has led singing in Baltimore Yearly Meeting's Friendly Sings, in Spiritual Formation Retreats, in BYM's Annual Session workshops, and in individual local Meetings in Philadelphia and Baltimore Yearly Meetings. She has also had the privilege of leading Soulful Singing workshops in FGC's week-long Gatherings.
