The Gift of Song

Journey Singers

Journey Singers

The saying “music is the universal language” is proving to be just the right medicine for both patients and staff, thanks to the soothing sounds of our very own Journey Singers.

Although the group has sung at hospice Memorial Services and the Opening Ceremony for our Wall of Honor, they are not a performance group. Their mission is to provide calming, a capella music at the patient’s bedside. Rehearsals are held typically on Wednesdays, 3:30-5:30 p.m.

Listen to the sounds of the wonderful Journey Singers, below.

 

 

Calling all Musicians: If you play an instrument, your talents are needed.

From the beginning of time, music has been a powerful force, serving as a memory trigger, a tool for distraction, an aid to relieve stress and a valuable way to bring families together. It is truly the universal language. Several volunteers enjoy playing instruments for the patients, families and staff, adding the wonderful sounds of music to our serene atmosphere of the Hospice Houses. We are especially in need of someone who would like to play their harp for our patients. Pianos and organs are available at all locations.

Share your musical talents via your instruments or by joining the Journey Singers.
