One Choir, Many Voices
Singing gently at the thresholds of life in over 200 communities around the world.
Studio will accept donations. This event is free to attend. Tell us you’re coming!
Our goal is to bring ease and comfort to those at the thresholds of living and dying. A calm and focused presence at the bedside, with gentle voices, simple songs, and sincere kindness, can be soothing and reassuring to clients, family, and caregivers alike.
When we are invited to a bedside, we visit in groups of two to four singers. We invite families and caregivers to join us in song or to participate by listening. We choose songs to respond to the client's musical taste, spiritual direction, and current receptivity. Many of the songs we offer are composed by Threshold Choir members specifically to communicate ease, comfort, and presence. Because our songs are not religiously oriented, our singing is appropriate for those who are deeply spiritual, whether religious or not.
Families have said that our presence helps them to “be” with their loved one after the “doing” is done. Often they will continue to sing for their loved one after we have departed.
The service is our gift; there is no charge.
