We Gentle the Journey with Song
Montgomery Hospice Threshold Choir is a volunteer group of men and women committed to bringing peace and comfort to the terminally ill through song and a quiet presence.
Montgomery Hospice Threshold Choir supports the compassionate care of Montgomery Hospice by providing bedside singing in small groups to hospice patients in homes and extended care facilities. Located in Rockville, Maryland, Montgomery Hospice Threshold Choir is a volunteer group of singers committed to bringing peace and comfort to the terminally ill through a cappella song and a quiet presence. Our repertoire spans traditions and religions, and we work with the individual and family to choose songs that will offer the most meaning and comfort.
As we sing bedside at the tender end stages of life, we are a choir of presence rather than performance. We strive to sing quietly together, blending our voices in a soft, soothing, peaceful lullabye sound.
Come sing with us! All are welcome to join our Montgomery Hospice Threshold Choir. We ask that choir members be able to hold their own parts while others sing harmony, offer a sensitive and compassionate presence to patients, and join us in Rockville on Thursdays from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. for rehearsals. Interested volunteers should contact Christiane Wiese, Director of Volunteer Services at Montgomery Hospice by email or call (301) 637-1850.
