What are the #BenefitsOfSinging?

We in the choral community know that singing has physical, psychological, social/emotional and educational benefits. But not enough people know this!

#BenefitsOfSinging is a good news, proactive campaign. It is more than a choir campaign. It is a healthy community campaign whose goals are to:

  • Share research on the benefits of singing together.
  • Educate the public on the benefits of group singing.
  • Provide a toolkit for choral leaders to advocate for their programs, recruit singers, build connections with decision- and policy-makers, attract donors and supporters, support grant writing, and strengthen choral communities in Canada.
  • Promote the idea of group singing as a social prescription for the medical community.

We need YOU to help spread the word to:

  • Individuals who have yet to discover the joy and power of group singing
  • Choral leaders and administrators
  • Decision-makers in Education: Ministers of Education, superintendents, principals and teachers
  • Health professionals: Ministers of Health, physicians, psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists and nurses
  • Decision- and policy-makers at all levels of government: Members of federal, provincial, and territorial parliament, members of city/town councils
  • Arts service organizations
  • Funders: Canada Council, provincial/territorial arts funding agencies, and local granting organizations

C’est quoi les bienfaits du chant?

Toute la communauté internationale le sait qu’il existe de nombreux avantages lorsque les gens chantent ensemble:

  • Physiques
  • Psychologiques
  • Sociaux/Émotionnels

  • aux responsables de la santé : ministres de la Santé, médecins, psychologues, psychiatres, thérapeutes, infirmières et infirmiers;
  • aux décideurs et responsables politiques de tous les niveaux : députés fédéraux, provinciaux ou territoriaux, conseils municipaux;
  • organismes de services artistiques;
  • bailleurs de fonds : Conseil des arts du Canada, organismes provinciaux et territoriaux de financement des arts et organismes subventionnaires locaux.

  1. The Sussex Choral Society will present it’s Christmas Concert on Sunday, December 15th, at 7:30 pm. It will be at the St. Francis Xavier Church on Church Avenue, doors open at 7:00 pm. Our conductor, Christopher Lane, has picked out a wonderful program of old favorites and new hits, and has even included something to tickle your funny bone. Come help us enjoy the Season and sing those Winter blues away!
