2. Singing Makes You Happy

A university study over the last 12 years has examined the impact of choral singing across the spiritual, social, psychological & health spectrum.

It also revealed that group singing brings a sense of joy & accomplishment, substantial social networks, greater well-being, higher self-esteem & stronger bond with the community.
