Celebrating our 10th anniversary with a chorus from many chapters
We are grateful for the welcome, interest, and support we have received from the general public and the hospice community. As of 2012, there were about 100 chapters of the Threshold Choir in the United States and Canada, as well as additional affiliated choirs overseas. Professional and academic recognition of the significance of our work continues to expand locally, as well as internationally. Kate Munger, our founder and Creative Director, has been invited to make presentations at the AIRS Phenomenon of Singing International Symposium (Newfoundland, 2011), Festival 500 (Newfoundland, 2011), and the Yale International Choral Festival (U.S.A., 2012).
Each Threshold Choir chapter is firmly rooted in its local community while also being an important part of our shared community as a national organization. We sing from the same repertoire and share our experiences at regional and national gatherings. Choir members know they are welcome at chapters and gatherings outside their area and often make plans to visit when traveling. We also stay in touch by email, blog, and newsletter and through this website. Most important, of course, we share a culture of compassion and respect for individuals at the threshold.
Threshold Choir is a 501(c)3 organization.
