The Lovely Loon Threshold Choir was introduced to Grand Rapids, Minnesota, in the summer of 2009. Our volunteer singers are a chapter of the Threshold Choir, an international organization that honors the ancient tradition of singing at the bedside of people who are struggling: some with living, some with dying. As members, we offer the gift of comforting songs at a most challenging stage of life.
We are a small but growing group, and we welcome new members. When invited, we visit as a two-person team, and we invite families and caregivers to be present while we sing. We offer universal songs that have simple harmonies. Our song is our gift; there is no charge.
We rehearse twice a month. Our second-Thursday rehearsals are held at the Memory Care Unit at River Grand Senior Living in Grand Rapids. Rehearsals on our 4th Thursday occur at a member’s house. Please email Director Linda Flanagan for further info and changes during our winter rehearsal times.
To visit a rehearsal or to request singers, please call Linda Flanagan at (218) 256-7469 or email us.
