We celebrated our first Tucson Threshold choir rehearsal of 2012 catching up on news since our last gathering and taking turns receiving song in the center of our singing circle. As recommended by our founder Kate Munger, we have a reclining chair that helps us to put ourselves into a receiving state of mind and into a similar position with those for whom we sing who are often in a bed or chair.
The Littleton, MA Threshold choir can be seen rehearsing in this way:
Our member C. is a songwriter, and we’ve had the privilege of debuting one of her pieces (“You Are Love”) in giving and receiving. When singing to someone in the chair during rehearsal, or at the bedside, we aim for a sense of unity with that person and with each other to express comfort and support through our joined voices. We all agreed that there was a particular sense of unity that permeated us when singing “You Are Love” this Tuesday, a wonderful beginning to the new year. We are looking forward to the year ahead with its many possibilities. Our rehearsals will continue to be the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month from 7:30-9 pm.
