Threshold Choir Gathering and Training Oct. 29-31

5th Annual Midwest Threshold Choir Gathering with Kate Munger

Yellow Springs, Ohio

Oct. 29-31, 2010

The all-women Threshold Choirs honor the ancient tradition of singing at the bedsides of people who are struggling: some with living, some with dying. The choirs provide opportunities for women to share the sacred gifts of their voices at life's thresholds.

Founder and director of the national Threshold Choir movement, Kate Munger, will be traveling to Yellow Springs for this workshop and gathering.

Weekend events include:
  • Early dinner at 4 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 29 at 114 West North College, followed by a Singing Circle at 1315 Corry Street
  • Singing Circle and Training with Kate on Saturday, Oct. 30, from 9:30-5 p.m. at 1315 Corry Street
  • Singing Circle and Graduation for choir members ready to become bedside singers, from 9:30-12:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 31 at 1315 Corry Street
There will also be a Threshold Choir Directors/Leadership Meeting with Kate on Sunday, Oct. 31, from 2-5 p.m.
