Singing is good for you!

Singing in a choir is good for you! It’s more than just a fun hobby: it’s been scientifically proven that it’s good for your health: from getting more oxygen into the blood, to increasing the flow of feelgood hormones and improving mental health.

Here’s what one of the bass members says about the Ipswich Bach Choir:

“I had sung as a treble and also a little at university, but although I enjoyed singing, my musical skills were rather poor.  I have very much enjoyed singing with the choir, finding it challenging but rewarding. The atmosphere is friendly and informal and mistakes are always tolerated. I would like to think that I have been able to improve musically since I joined, and I have certainly become more confident.   We perform a variety of music, by no means confined to Bach.”

Studies show choir singers feel happier, less anxious, less depressed, and overall more positive about what life has to offer! If in addition you are singing glorious music with a professional orchestra, what’s not to like?

Here’s how one choir member reports her experience in the Ipswich Bach Choir:

Wednesday is a busy day for me, and I often don’t really feel like going along, but force myself to go, and when there the tiredness leaves me in the enjoyment of the music and companionship of the other choir members, and I leave feeling refreshed and invigorated.  It does me good.  For one thing, it keeps my brain working (particularly when the music is not familiar to me) and my lungs exercised.”

Our next concert will be on November 25, the programme will be Mozart’s  Coronation Mass, Vespers and Ave Verum Corpus.

Rehearsals begin on September 13th at Rosehill School, Derby Road, Ipswich.

Let’s sing Mozart together!
