The Lovely Loon Threshold Choir was introduced to Grand Rapids, Minnesota, in the summer of 2009. Our volunteer singers are a chapter of the Threshold Choir, an international organization that honors the ancient tradition of singing at the bedside of people who are struggling: some with living, some with dying. As members, we offer the gift of comforting songs at a most challenging stage of life.
We are a small but growing group, and we welcome new members. When invited, we visit as a two-person team, and we invite families and caregivers to be present while we sing. We offer universal songs that have simple harmonies. Our song is our gift; there is no charge.
We rehearse twice a month. The second Thursday rehearsal (times change due to winter months) is held at the Memory Care Unit at River Grand Senior Living in Grand Rapids. Our second rehearsal is held on the fourth Thursday at Community Presbyterian Church, also in Grand Rapids.
To visit a rehearsal or to request singers, please call Linda Flanagan at (218) 256-7469 or email us.
