SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – Choir members in San Diego have made it their mission to use music to bring comfort to people nearing the end of their lives.

Threshold Choir's director, Nadean Burington, started the local chapter in 2011.  It is an a cappella choir that sings for and with those at the thresholds of life.  They sing at the bedside at San Diego hospices, institutions, and private homes.

Recently, doctors diagnosed Burington with stage four cancer. She has recently started requesting the choir's services.

“It's wonderful. It's a gift back to me now for what I've given to help start it,” Burington said. “I feel well at this point but I want to the music continue for as long as possible.”

Burington says the next directors have been picked out. But in the meantime, she is still looking for members to join her choir.  You can reach them at (858) 565-8653.
