Sing with me tonight!
I am in London tonight with my editor hat on for our latest Psychologies event, learning how singing can improve our health. Do come down if you can.
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 taking part in a groundbreaking study focusing on the effects of singing in a choir will improve your mental health
The project has also been approved by the National Research Ethics Service and we are collaborating with the Royal Marsden Hospital.
