Saskatoon Threshold Singers
We are all just walking each other home.
~ Ram Dass
What We Offer
When invited, we sing at bedside in groups of two to four, to offer a moment of grace during a difficult time. Our songs are simple, soothing, and uplifting. We sing for those who are seriously ill or dying. We sing for those surrounded by loving family and for those alone at the end of their lives. We honour all spiritual paths but have no religious affiliation.
Our voices are our gift; there is no charge.
Julianne Hazlewood of CBC radio’s Saskatoon Morning accompanied three of the Saskatoon Threshold Singers on a visit to a local care home to find out more about what we do. The songs you hear in this story are “Calming, Resting, Breathing” by Patricia Hallam, “Dona Nobis Pacem,” “Walking Each Other Home” by Ram Dass and Kate Munger, and “You Are Not Alone,” by Kate Munger. Listen to the story.

If You Would Like to Sing With Us…
Periodically we welcome new singers to our group. We ask that you be able to hold a melody or harmony part on your own and on pitch or be willing to learn these skills, to blend your voice with others’, and to learn the songs we sing. We are not a performance choir and do not require auditions.
To find out more, invite us to sing, or inquire about singing with us, please contact us by email.
