Kate Munger is a singer and songwriter who lives with her family, sings, works and swims along the shores of Tomales Bay, and has led community singing for more than 30 years. In 2000 Kate founded the first Threshold Choir for women who are called to sing at the bedsides of people who are dying, ill, or in a coma, and with women who are incarcerated. Today there are 45 Threshold Choirs and 800 singers in the U.S. These choirs bring together a magnificent community of huge-hearted, collaborating, creative women who know that true service heals everyone. The choirs have released two CDs: Listening at the Threshold and Tenderly Rain: Songs of Gratitude, Remembrance & Keeping Watch.
