Private Engagements and Settings

Memorial service featuring Amandla’s loving performance, 2009.

You are welcome to call us to request our songs and respectful presence at your home, a medical facility, or a ritual/event, including:

  • weddings
  • baby-welcomings
  • coming-of-age ceremonies
  • family celebrations
  • memorial services
  • “bedside sings” (people in hospice/at life’s end)

We can come with as few as four singers or bring a larger group. Our fees are on a sliding scale. In addition, we have a long history of sharing music at no charge, for example, at benefits and bedside sings.

Music for Healing

Our chorus brings music into (and outside of) homes to inspire those recovering from illness, injury, surgery, stroke, etc. Throughout history, music has brought healing and can be beneficial for people facing many different kinds of challenges.

Live music, when presented skillfully, can also provide comfort in hospice situations. Since 1990, we’ve brought music to the bedsides of people at life’s end dozens of times, yet the experience never fails to astound us with its indescribable power and grace.
