Songs of Comfort at the End of Life

Life is like a song. It has crescendos and rhythm and a defined beginning, middle and end. The Threshold Choir takes this song metaphor literally and uses it to comfort terminally ill individuals with music and harmony. While singing at bedsides, people have told the singers they feel less pain, anxiety and loneliness. Today, the group has expanded from its origin in San Francisco to 150 choirs around the world.
