Comox Valley Threshold Choir
“We are all just walking each other home” ~ Ram Dass
Who We Are
Located in the beautiful Comox Valley, British Columbia, and serving the communities of Courtenay, Comox, and Cumberland, we are a group of men and women with compassionate hearts and voices who bring the comfort of song to those at the thresholds of life. Our songs are selected to bring serenity and comfort to people whatever their personal spiritual path. We sing tenderly and lovingly in groups of three or four at the bedsides of those who are ill or dying. Our aim is to gently enter into someone’s life, to share our music and hearts, and then to softly take our leave.
In the course of honouring and celebrating life in additional ways, we sometimes sing in larger groups at memorial services, community benefits, gatherings, care homes and other events, as well as wherever it seems a song will serve the moment.
Our voices are our gift; there is no charge.
We honour all spiritual paths and have no religious affiliation.
Please email us or call Jane at (250) 792-5993. We look forward to hearing from you.

Sing With Us
We welcome new singers to our group. To best serve those living with life-limiting illnesses, we ask that you be able to hold a melody or harmony part on your own and on pitch (or sincerely want to learn these skills); that you be able to blend and convey kindness with your singing voice (or sincerely want to learn); that you respect all spiritual traditions; and that you have a desire to contribute to a vibrant and connected group.
If this truly resonates with you, then please contact us using the information above.
We rehearse on Tuesday mornings from 10:00 to 11:30am at various locations throughout the Comox Valley.
Please see the menus at the top of the page for more information about the Threshold Choir organization.
