Studies show that choral singing improves our mood, with a decrease in stress, depression and anxiety. Join our Community Choir rehearsals every Tuesday, starting 11th September 4.45-5.30pm in Room Z5.
Studies show that choral singing improves our mood and decreases stress, depression and anxiety. These effects are often attributed to the deeper breathing associated with singing, the same technique also used in meditation. These benefits are enhanced in a group setting when compared to singing alone. Singing in a group offers us a sense of belonging to something bigger than ourselves.
Beyond these psychological effects our physical health is also impacted for the better: lower blood pressure, increased blood oxygen saturation, elevated immunity, higher pain threshold, stronger respiratory muscles and less stuttering. Music making produces measurable changes in the brain! All of these factors can lead to a deeper sense of well-being and overall happiness.
You don’t need any prior experience!!

"After choir practice I can't stop humming the songs for a couple of days. I believe singing really improves your mood!" Inge Noordhuis-Blok
"Singing is so good for the soul! Being in a choir has always been a dream of mine. BISB Community Choir is a great way to have fun and make new friends." Raffaella Bruno-Pinto
