Singing for Pleasure
Singing is something that most of us enjoy.It can be nostalgic, recalling happy memories, or perhaps you enjoy joining in when listening to a music track on the radio. However, belonging to a group can be more beneficial and is also a really good way to meet and socialise with people.
There are a variety of singing styles that can be experienced by joining a choir. Some people find this daunting and excuse themselves by saying that they can't sing well enough or can't read music. In fact, if you can talk, you can sing, maybe not with an operatic voice, but well enough to follow a tune. The ability to read music is not essential and most of the songs are sung from musicals and sung in unison.
What is generally not known is just how good singing in a choir can be for you. Not only does it improve the immune system significantly during practice sessions, but even more during a performance. It has also been found that it stimulates your emotional state by boosting your immune system as well as physical benefits, such as improved breathing and posture, and an increase in your concentration and self confidence.
The Singing for Pleasure group meets, every Thursday, at the Upton Scout Hut, from 2.00 pm to 3.30 pm, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and new members are always welcome. So, if you would like to join us, why not come along.
