Who We Are
River of Grace Threshold Singers is a group of women who sing to make kindness audible, seeking to bring comfort to those at the threshold of life. We sing soft, gentle music at the bedside, in groups of 3 or 4, offering love and comfort through our songs. We honor all spiritual paths and have no specific religious affiliation. We are currently serving Oak Ridge, Tennessee, singing at Methodist Medical Center, skilled nursing facilities, and the homes of Avalon Hospice patients.
Singing With Us
We welcome inquiries from singers who feel called to join us in this special work. Exploring the "Membership" tab of this website will provide an excellent introduction.
We meet reqularly for rehearsals on Monday evenings, where we work on learning to sing quietly together, listening carefully and blending our voices, and following the cues of the bedside song leader. While there is no audition, we ask that prospective singers be able to carry a tune, hold a part in harmony, sing softly and blend with others, and communicate kindness with your voice. We seek singers who are open to self-monitoring and peer feedback as we work together. The ability to read music is not required, though it can be helpful.
We will have an open rehearsal on Monday, January 27, 2020, at 6:30 for people who would like to learn more about us. Please contact us for the address.
If you would like to learn more about us, request singers, or attend a rehearsal, please email [email protected] or call (865) 256-1026.
