Benefits of Singing
Singing is a very healthy activity; it is really a perfect hobby for most. Joining our choir may give you that regular opportunity to enjoy singing while you get a chance to sing different kinds of music, and get to be around others who share your interest in music.
"And did you know that joining a choir will also add greatly to your life; not just in a musical way. We all know it makes us feel good and now science is discovering how singing can treat illnesses; even help prevent colds and flu."
But while the feel-good, physical and mental health benefits of singing are well-documented, some put all sorts of hurdles in the way of singing. They worry about singing in public or that they don’t have a nice or strong voice; that they can’t read music or that they will be the novice among an established group.
But there is no need to worry. The challenges and joy of singing in a group may be just the push or lift you need. Singing is a wonderful release and opportunity to express yourself, your thoughts and feelings through music and singing.
In fact choral singing is said to act as a de-stresser and improve our sense of well-being. So, the personal benefits we can get from group singing and its impact on communities are enormous. “Results from the latest research support the findings that adult choral singers exhibit increased social skills, civic involvement, volunteerism, philanthropy and support of other art forms compared with non-singers.”
If you would like to come along and observe or join in our rehearsals why not speak to a current member or drop us an email .
