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
