Soothing sounds for a dying veteran

(KCRA) A dying California veteran received a special visit over the weekend.

The Sacramento Threshold Choir provides comfort with the gift of song to those going through life’s most difficult crossroads.

“When you hear the word choir you think of performance. And we are the opposite of that,” said Mary Patt. “I’ve spent my life performing in choir, and this fills a hole that is completely different.”

The group serenaded Air Force Veteran Peter Scott at his Winding Way Villa Senior Home.

There are currently 150 Threshold Choir communities worldwide, comprised of volunteers who sing a harmony of original lyrics to ease physical and emotional stress.

“We call it, for the most part, lullabies for the end of life,” Patt said. “But it’s not always the end of life.”
