Choir comforts hospice patients; seeks volunteers

Like a choir of angels, four women surrounded Stein hospice patient Deedy Johnsen with song.

“I thought the music was wonderful,” Johnsen said afterward. “It’s very, very soothing.”

Johnsen is one a many patients at Stein Hospice who enjoys the dulcet tones of the Stein Hospice Threshold Choir. The muscial group is a local chapter of a larger organization (thresholdchoir.org) that comforts seriously ill and dying patients with small bed-side concerts.

Stein Hospice Threshold Choir is holding an open house to seek volunteers and to provide samples of the choir’s music. It’s from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. June 7 in the Community Room on the first floor of Firelands Regional Medical Center’s South Campus, 1912 Hayes Ave.
