Threshold Singers soothe for free
December 9, 2011 · Updated 7:59 AM
Whidbey Threshold Singers honor the ancient tradition of women singing at the bedside of those who are ill or dying.
They sing by invitation only, in groups of two or three, bringing comfort and peace to those in need. Family members or caregivers are invited to participate by listening or sometimes singing with us.
Songs include rounds, chants and lullabies, many of which were composed particularly for bedside singing. They are not associated with any church or religious group, yet feel their songs can uplift people of many different spiritual orientations.
Singing is free of charge. If you or someone you know would like to receive our gift of song, please contact Linda Edling on North Whidbey, 678-1073, or Christa Straub on South Whidbey, 331-7633.
New singers are always welcome. If you can carry a tune, have the time to commit to regular rehearsals every Tuesday and love singing in service, call one of the above numbers.
