Napa Rounds is an informal drop-in singing experience for women that celebrates our lives, honors all wisdom and the seasons in spirited, sacred and sometimes silly songs. Led by Kate Munger, the Rounds group is separate from the Threshold Choir, but has many overlapping members. It meets on 3rd Thursdays at 7pm in western Napa. New members welcome. Contact Kate Munger for location.

San Francisco Midnight Choir is a coed choral adventure that sings lullabies and songs of hope and spirit to the homeless on the streets of San Francisco. It is also a separate group from the Threshold Choir and led by Kate Munger, again with many overlapping members. It meets on 4th Mondays at 7 pm. New members welcome. Contact Kate Munger for location.

Interest has been espressed in starting local Threshold Choir chapters in Oregon, southern California, Colorado, and Idaho.

Kate Munger is available to consult with community groups, corporations, churches, faith groups and service organizations in and outside the Bay Area who want to set up Threshold Choirs in their areas.
