How singing can change your life

Join us for an uplifting event in collaboration with the Royal College of Music and Imperial College London

by Psychologies

Research on singing for wellbeing has burgeoned in recent years and this event, in collaboration with the Royal College of Music and Imperial College London, will explore cutting-edge findings on how singing in a choir can affect mental health, psychological wellbeing, quality of life and stress hormones.

You’ll have the opportunity to take part in a choir session led by groundbreaking charity Tenovus Cancer Care, which now has 19 choirs across Wales and London for those affected by cancer.

You will also find out about a new two-year study examining the effects of singing over several months, and have the chance to take part in the research.

If you’ve ever fancied joining a choir but didn’t dare, come and try it out!

You will learn:

  • How to let go and truly sing with abandon 
  • About how singing in a choir will improve your mental health and immunity
  • How to get involved with our new scientific study

Date: 14 June 2017

Venue: Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, London WC1 4RL

Time: 7pm-8.30pm

Cost: £18

The project has also been approved by the National Research Ethics Service and we are collaborating with the Royal Marsden Hospital.
