Choir

ALL Choir rehearsals begin again this January! The choir rehearses every two weeks and sings one Sunday a month until April. All are welcome to join. We rehearse in the sanctuary at ALL. The only prerequisite is the willingness to sing.

Why I Joined the Choir - Leah McLaren – The Globe and Mail

British scientists have recently found that choirs boost the mental and physical health of their members. Researchers from Oxford Brookes University studied 375 people who sang alone, sang in choirs and played team sports, and found that the choristers experienced the greatest benefits by far. Earlier studies have found choral singing to have benefits for people suffering from depression, lung disease, high blood pressure and Parkinson’s. One study even found that choral singers unconsciously synchronize their heartbeats with other choir members.

 

Psychologist Nick Stewart, who led the Oxford Brookes study, speculated that “it could be that singing in a group gives us something that we have lost as a society.”

 

Singing in a choir is a transcendent experience – and there aren’t many of those in life. It instills gratitude and without the contortions of yoga or hangovers of alcohol. Singing doesn’t just make us feel better – it makes us better people. By singing in a group, we choose to recede for a moment from selfish concerns and pursue harmony with those around us.
