Evergreen Singers

The Evergreen Singers are a small group of people from the Connecticut River Valley who offer songs for comfort and healing to people who are ill or nearing the end of life. We sing at the bedside or in living areas in private homes, hospitals, assisted living facilities, or nursing homes. We have participated in training, and we accept the standards of care and confidentiality promoted by hospice. Our singing services are offered without charge.

For more information about our group and how to arrange for music for a family member, a patient, or a friend, please visit our website.

Hello,

Several members of the Evergreen Singers sang at my sisters home (Carol Cote with terminal Sarcoma Cancer) in Springfield, NH on Monday, April 25th. They did a remarkable job, the songs were beautiful and beautifully sung. My brother-in-law said it was nice to see his wife smile as she hasn’t in weeks. Thank you for providing this comforting and caring service.

To the Evergreen Singers- June 5, 2017

Thank you!

My mother passed away last week at the Valley Terrace Community facility in Wilder, Vermont. She was 90 years old. Her name was Helen Aulis.

This wonderful group, The Evergreen Singers, came on multiple occasions and sang beautifully for her- and sometimes for all the residents. They are a wonderful, compassionate and talented group of singers with a deep appreciation for the power of music to speak to us at all points in our lives.

It was miraculous to me that just when we needed them they came. On one of the most recent visits, but before the very end of Helen’s life, they sang a favorite song of hers- Over the Rainbow. She had not been able to speak for several days amor respond to us. When hearing this song she mouthed the words and smiled. It was obvious that the music had reached her and pleased her deeply.

These wonderful people sang for her on several occasions, after just a phone call.

I am so very appreciative of their kindness and I know my mother was as well. Thank you so very much for the work you do and the spirit you do it with.

While I am not a singer and can’t participate, I would like to continue to learn about your work and how we might support you.

With gratitude,

Patty Goodman
Etna, NH
