LBS carol choir needs you!

At a concert, festival, in the shower or on karaoke - we all like a sing-song in our own way, but did you know there are proven health benefits to singing?

Professor Graham Welch, Chair of Music Education at the Institute of Education, University of London, has studied the developmental and medical aspects of singing for 30 years.  He found that the health benefits of singing are both physical and psychological:

“Singing has physical benefits because it is an aerobic activity that increases oxygenation in the blood stream and exercises major muscle groups in the upper body, even when sitting. Singing has psychological benefits because of its normally positive effect in reducing stress levels through the action of the endocrine system which is linked to our sense of emotional well-being. Psychological benefits are also evident when people sing together as well as alone because of the increased sense of community, belonging and shared endeavour."

The LBS Carol Choir is decking the halls for the new season and would love you to join them.

Do you love Christmas carols? If so, get on board! 

Kate Nicholroy (L&D) and James Clark(HR) are running the LBS Carol Choir which will perform this Christmas.

They will be singing some favourite traditional choir carols, and will be rehearsing for just once a week, on a Monday from 17:15 to 18:30, not a huge time committment.

If you are interested in taking part, please email James Clark or join the Yammer group.
