The Yellow Springs Threshold Singers work to bring compassion and comfort to those at the threshold between living and dying through bedside song.
When invited, a small group of singers (usually two or three) comes to sing quietly at the bedside for perhaps 20 to 30 minutes in hospitals, nursing homes, and private homes in the Yellow Springs, Ohio, area. We are sensitive to the physical and emotional needs of the individual and family, always respecting the desire for privacy and family time. The singing is meant to soothe and inspire. Family, friends, and caregivers are welcome to listen or quietly join in.
There is no charge for this service.
The Yellow Springs Threshold Singers group is open to all women who feel called to this service. Musical training is not necessary, only a desire to sing from your heart, blending your voice with other singers learning the beautiful Threshold Choir repertoire. As this is not a performance group, members work on learning to sing quietly together, listening to one another and blending voices. Singing at bedside comes in time, when the new singer is ready.
