Woodbridge Flute Choir Concerto Concert!

I play flute and alto flute in the Woodbridge Flute Choir, and we played our concerto concert tonight at 7:00 pm. I would like to share some of our songs with you, so here are some highlights you can listen to:

Air a l'Italien from Telemann's Suite in A Minor, featuring our concerto competition winner, senior Avery Sandborn, as the soloist (I play C flute):

Here is a song composed just for our director, Debbie Gilbert, called Everlasting Branch. It is written by Melvin Lauf, Jr., who also accompanied us on the song with his harp (I play alto flute):

On the weekend of February 27-March 1, 2009, I attended an excellent training led by Carol Cox, MA, ATR-BC, LPAT and Alysa Muller, Psy.D., FAMI, covering the theory of the Great Round of Mandala created by Joan Kellogg. It was a very informative training with theory based on years of research and experience as they taught the 13 total stages in the Great Round. We drew our own mandalas for each stage, which I have included in a slide show below.

Our training was at Bon Secours Spiritual Center in Maryland, which is a very peaceful retreat center. Though we didn't have much time to explore, and it snowed on the last day so I drove home to beat the bigger storm, I saw some very nice views through the windows. I hope to go back in October to Part 2, and plan to explore more then!

Snow Day!

We got our biggest snowstorm of the winter (well, we've only had 2 inches so far), and got around 6 inches last night and this morning. So I got a snow day today from work....yeah! Here's some pictures to share (keep in mind, the first 4 pictures were taken at was quite bright outside!):
