threshold choir introductory workshop
On Saturday, 6 May 2017, Melanie DeMore will lead a workshop for those interested in learning about the Threshold Choir. It is “a network of a cappella choirs of primarily women’s voices: a community whose mission is to sing for and with those at the thresholds of life” (from thresholdchoir.org). Threshold Choir mem-bers generally sing for terminally-ill people in their last days of life, but the choir will also sing for those on other thresholds, such as the birth of a premature baby, the victim of a violent crime, or someone experiencing the pain of divorce.
For more information, visit thresholdchoir.org. To register for this introductory workshop, please call our church office at 951-682-1350 or send an email message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
