Our group began singing at bedsides in 2010 and has grown steadily since then.
Who We Are
The Threshold Singers of Wheaton are a nondenominational, collaborative group of women who sing a cappella in small groups. We sing by invitation for those who can benefit from an interlude of soothing, comforting music; many of our clients are seriously ill or dying. We offer the gift of song in Wheaton, Illinois, and other western suburban locations. We are one of more than 100 Threshold Choirs around the world.
Who Can Join
Any woman who loves to sing and wants to offer comfort and kindness through singing is welcome. The ability to read music is not required; however, you must be able to carry a tune.
How to Decide If This Is for You
Attend a few rehearsals so that you can learn more about us and determine whether you are willing and able to commit to being a part of the group. Before singing at bedside, you will need to learn approximately 30-40 Threshold songs and register as a member of Threshold Choir, the international organization.
Where We Sing
The facilities we serve on a regularly scheduled basis are:
- DuPage Convalescent Center

We do our best to fulfill all requests to sing for people wherever they are in the Western Suburbs — at home or in a hospital or other facility.
