Who We Are

Our Vision

Swan Songs envisions a world where the end of life is celebrated through the gift of music to anyone wishing to receive a peaceful and joy filled moment in time.

Our Mission

Swan Songs fulfills musical wishes at the end of life by organizing private concerts for individuals with a terminal illness.  At their request, a favorite style of music or musicians is brought directly to the home or facility.  The concert allows recipient, family and friends to focus beyond the illness and come together through the medium of music. 

Our History

Swan Songs grew from a small gathering in 1992 when Christine Albert was asked to sing for a young man facing early death from a terminal illness.  That experience inspired other concerts and in 2005 Swan Songs was founded in Austin, Texas to fulfill musical wishes at the end of life. Read More
