Currently our Northern Office, has acapella singers who bring comfort and peace to patients and families through music and song. They provide this service in private homes, nursing homes, and hospitals.
Their repertoire includes hymns, chants, and selections from classic American song. The Chrysalis Singers also sing at our Remembrance Gatherings and are often invited to sing at adult facilities, nursing homes, and hospitals in the general community.
At times the singers have been honored to help carry a patient over through song. In one case, a long time High Peaks Hospice and Palliative Care volunteer was admitted for hospice services. She continued to volunteer as long as she could, and in her last moments, she was beaming as the Chrysalis Singers helped comfort her with song as she passed.
