HeartSong Community Singers of Iowa City offer the gift of song at life’s most sacred and vulnerable moments: births, milestones, transitions, celebrations, illnesses and death.
When invited to sing, we visit people at their preferred location: home, hospital, bedside or other comfortable place. We enter the space with no expectation of social graces or effort from the receiver(s). We bring everything we need to stand, sit or kneel comfortably around people as we sing. We share a unique selection of a cappella songs that express themes of love, healing, nature, peace, and inspiration; choosing songs that respond to the situation. Loved ones are invited to participate by listening or joining in song. This singing is given as a gift; there is no charge.
When we are finished, we quietly leave and hope the song-receiver(s) enjoy the warm blanket of loving song that has been woven around them, in the hopes that our brief presence has brought honor and grace, comfort and peace.
