What We Offer

We are women who sing for people crossing life's thresholds: birth, death, sickness, struggle, change, and celebration. We choose songs to respond to the musical tastes, spiritual traditions, and needs of those we serve. Our songs carry messages of love, strength, comfort, healing, peace, and joy.

When invited, we sing in groups of two or three in private homes, care facilities, and hospitals in Portland, Oregon. We sing in larger groups at contemplative events. Through voice and song, we offer presence, care, support  companionship on the path.

Our service is our gift; there is no charge. We gratefully welcome donations.

Singing With Us

If you are drawn to this work, if you are nourished by music and wish to be of service, you have some of the core qualities we seek. If you can carry a tune, hold a part, blend your voice with others, and share kindness with your voice (or sincerely want to learn), we welcome you to join us. 

We practice together on the second Tuesday and fourth Sunday of the month from 6:30 to 9 p.m. in southeast Portland. Smaller group practices are occasionally held in singers' homes. We take time quarterly to go on day-long retreat to nurture our community of singers and tend to choir business.
