Benefits of singing in a choir

Did you know that a study of 70 college students found that choir rehearsal was related to a reduction in anxiety and negative moods?  That finding, and more, was reported in the scientific journal Psychology of Music and in a PSYPOST article.

As someone who's been a part of a numbers of choirs since high school, I an attest to the benefits.  Choir members can not only enjoy being a part of making great music, but they're also often fun social gathers.  As a tenor I must confess to telling more than my share of bass jokes.
