This network of a Capella vocalists sings for people who are on the thresholds of their lives. They sing "for the sick and the dying," as Anne Ternus-Bellamy eloquently put it in her Davis Enterprise story.
The group is called the Threshold Choir, and you'll have a chance to join them in a workshop on July 28, as founder Kate Munger leads an open session for female voices. It will be held at Fair Oaks United Methodist Church, starting at 9:30 a.m. A donation is suggested. ()
"They sing to ease the discomfort and fear and anxiety of those on the threshold between life and death," wrote Ternus-Bellamy in the Enterprise. "Referred by Yolo Hospice, local hospitals and individuals, they go in groups of three or four to the bedside of the sick and dying throughout Davis, where they’ll sing for an hour or so at a time, once a week, and when the end draws near, they’ll go more often."
If you read one thing today, read that Enterprise article. It'll make you feel good about what humans are capable of. And if you know anybody who enjoys singing, let them know about the event.
A salad lunch will be provided. Bring your own napkin, water bottle/mug. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. Donation suggested. If you'd like more information, contact Karen at 209-296-7354 or check out www.thresholdchoir.org.
