3 Reasons Why Singing in a Choir is the Best Thing Ever

#1. Many Voices as One:
One of the goals of quality choral singing is to blend the unique sounds of different voices into one seamless sound. This is very technically challenging, given that each individual voice has a unique timbre, but it is such a rewarding feeling to achieve that beautiful blend of sound! Even more fulfilling, is singing choral music written in different parts, a feat that cannot be achieved with solo singing!

#2. Health Benefits:
There are a myriad of different studies examining not only the psychological benefits of singing in a choir, but the physiological benefits as well. Singing in a choir can improve memory, provide relief from stress, and aid in respiratory problems, to name only a few benefits. So join a choir – for your health!

#3. Community: 
The sense of community experienced when singing as part of a choir, is one of the most important reasons to join a choir. Being part of a group working towards a common goal, and having a goal as wonderful as creating beautiful music together, is a uniquely satisfying experience. The friendships formed when singing together in a choir can last a lifetime!
