"After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music." - Aldous Huxley, Music at Night
HeartSong is a community-based volunteer chorus sharing songs of comfort and peace for the infirm and ill, the dying, and their families and caregivers.
Heartsong's calming, beautiful harmonies can open hearts, quiet fears and touch all who are present. We select music carefully in response to the physical and emotional state of patients and to their musical and spiritual preferences.
We sing in private homes, hospital rooms, nursing homes and hospice settings in Midcoast Maine from Stockton Springs to Camden and from Belfast to Palermo. If there is the space and the desire, as many as twenty of us can sing, but we can also provide as few as two singers.
HeartSingers participate in an abbreviated hospice orientation and are sensitive to individual needs and situations. We feel privileged to offer our services at no charge, and confidentiality is respected.
