Join a choir and contribute to your healthy lifestyle! Research on the benefits of singing in groups is stunning. Choral singing calms heart rates, boosts endorphin levels, and improves lung function and digestion. It increases pain thresholds and reduces the need for pain medication. While the physiological payoffs of choral singing are many, the psychological ones might be even greater. Several studies demonstrate that choral singing delivers a significant boost to positive mood. It also lifts self-esteem while reducing feelings of stress and symptoms of depression. It enhances one’s sense of purpose and meaning, and increases sensitivity toward others. These effects don’t come from just singing per se but from singing in a group (from the book When by Daniel Pink). And that’s not all - adding a choir faith practice to the rhythm of your week can be a boost to your spiritual health. Come be a part of our vibrant musical community!
