Sing with Life Journey Singers, Providing Comfort in Song

Nanaimo Life Journey Singers, under the direction of Leah Hokanson, is currently accepting new members. This group provides comfort in song for those at various thresholds in their life journey. Although their primary focus is singing at bedside for the very ill and dying, they are also available to sing for births, memorial services, vigils, people in recovery, and anyone who would benefit from a comforting presence in times of transition, illness, or trauma. If you feel called to share your musical gifts in this way, and are interested in learning more about us, contact Leah Hokanson at 250-247-9854 or email.
