As a way to sooth stress and ease tension, listening to music is a well established practice. For those at the end of life, the sound of music can ease pain and anxiety and connect the person to a more peaceful place. Kate Munger, the founder of Threshold Choirs, realized the power of music at the bedside of the dying when she tended to a friend dying of AIDS in 1990. That epiphany led to the creation of Threshold Choirs, small groups of a cappella singers who provide soothing music for dying patients. There are now over 150 Threshold Choirs throughout the United States. To learn more about these extraordinarily dedicated groups of singers, Watch This.
