Gentle Harmonies to Comfort the Dying
We are the Threshold Choir of Bloomington, Indiana -- one of over 100 chapters of the International Threshold Choir organization founded and based in the San Francisco Bay area in California. We are a community of women dedicated to singing, upon request, in harmony at the bedsides of those in hospice care. We sing chant-like songs for the purpose of honoring, supporting, calming, soothing and comforting. We come to each bedside with the intent to allow love, grace and peace to flow. We often receive feedback from our clients and their families letting us know the profound impact of our time with them. We also hear that the singing affects the staff and caregivers in hospice in a very positive manner and are told it brings a deep peace to anyone who listens in. We feel privileged and blessed to be able to offer this service to our community.
