The Bowen Threshold Singers

The Threshold Singers are women who offer singing to bring ease and comfort to anyone in need of it, especially at the bedside of those who are seriously ill or dying. In groups of two to four we sing gentle songs from a variety of traditions. We sing when invited and come as often as requested, in private homes, hospices, care facilities and hospitals. We freely give our gift of singing, however donations are graciously accepted to support our work. Contact Shasta Martinuk for more information and to request a visit.
The Crossing Over Singers are a group of Bowen men offering the same service. Their contact is Brian Hoover.
Bowen Threshold Singers and Crossing Over Singers are affiliated with the International Threshold Choir movement.
