SOUNDS OF SPIRIT ~ Music for the Inner Journey
Saturday, May 6th beginning at 7:30 PM (Doors open at 7 PM--arrive early to prepare your personal space)
UTZ Field House at the MSW Campus: 1055 Montessori Drive, Westminster, Maryland 21158
With Jim Thomas, Paul Thomas, Pitz Quattorne, & David Powell.
Using chant, overtone singing, didgeridoo, synthesizer, tongue drum, ocarina, shruti box, the tambur, and other elemental textures, Jim Thomas (acupuncturist and musician), Paul Thomas (sound healer and musician), Pitz Quattrone (didgeridoo teacher, performer, and builder), and David Powell (musician and student of Native American traditions) create together a powerful meditative experience guided by sound and rhythm. Participants are immersed in a deeply relaxing and tranformative soundscape which can act as a potent catalyst for:
- Stress relief
- Emotional release & clarity
- Inner stillness
- Intuitive insight, transcendental awareness, & spiritual connection
Please bring something comfortable to lie on (i.e., thick cushion or blankets -- one yoga won't do!), a warm covering, and a pillow. Eye shades, water bottle, and journal are recommended as well. Concert cost is $35 per person. Doors open at 7 PM. This is an adult-only event. Space is limited; register early.

When a musician works with sound, it is as if he or she were placing an ear on the heart of nature.
The musician perceives the will of nature and the cosmos and gives it back in a melody.
Expansion at the Montessori School of Westminster:
The South Pavilion adds expanded use to our auxilliary building, the UTZ Field House
The Montessori School of Westminster (MSW) has completed its latest campus expansion project. The construction of the South Pavilion addition to the UTZ Field House provides more space for art, music, environmental education, and other special activities. And with the addition of new restrooms, the pre-existing public space provided by the UTZ Field House is more convenient than ever! Students at the Montessori School of Westminster have space sufficient to gather. All grades, from our two-year-old program--"Beginnings"--through our Middle School program can share the same space for community-oriented activities like the holiday singalong enjoyed by all. The space provided by the UTZ Field House not only will house the entire student body; it is large enough to bring together the families of the students as well. No matter the weather, events at MSW are pleasant in the shelter of the UTZ Field House. The South Pavilion expands the offerings our students enjoy on a regular basis. Visit our campus to see our completed expansion!
