We are small group of women (not professional singers) dedicated to singing at life's challegning thresholds as calmly and peacefully as possible. We follow and respect all confidentiality rules and regulations.
For those being placed on hospice, we encourage you to contact us as soon as you or your family member begins to travel this path. By providing monthly, bi-weekly, or weekly sings we are able to become part of your care team and you to get to know us and our mission, so that when the time approaches that singing will truly provide comfort to the person transitioning, everyone will feel comfortable with our singers providing solace and a "sacred space" for you or your loved one and any family/friends that are on this joureny with you.
We are also welcome the chance to sing to patients on their road to recovery. We have a very different set of songs for comfort, encouragement, and healing energy.
~ We sing in groups of 2 or 3 at bedside for the seriously ill, such as: those under-going cancer treatments, long term COVID, long term hospital stays. For anyone going through a difficult medical transition
~ We sing for patients placed on hospice, as well as their loved ones
~ We sing for up to an hour though most visits are 20-30 minutes
~ We will sing as long as needed for vigil singing (usually just one singer)
~ Or we can just sing a song or two
~ Please know that the patient or family is free to cancel or postpone right up to the time of visit - things change, we understand
~ We visit in homes, long term care facilities, or Hospice House
~ We are able to gather fairly quickly with a few hours notice
~ Our singing comes from the heart and is free of charge (donations are accepted, see below)
~ We currently sing in the greater Concord/Manchester, NH area
Our range of songs is wide. We sing "social songs" for those new to hospice or on the long recovery road, to provide uplifting energy and diversion. For those who are actively dying and need the comfort and calm, we sing soothing lullabys, hymns, chants and sacred sounds from many cultural traditions.
PLEASE NOTE: We sing these songs with permission from the composers. Any recordings made while we visit is for YOUR USE ONLY! Please do NOT post on social media. We try very hard to respect the work of our very generous composers. Thank you so much for understanding.
