Have you heard the latest? Chorus America, “the advocacy, research, and leadership development organization for choruses, choral leaders, and singers,” has come out with a study recently on How Children, Adults, and Communities Benefit from Choruses. Here are some of the key findings:
1. Choral singing continues to be the most popular form of participation in the performing arts.
2. Adults who sing in choruses are remarkably good citizens.
3. Children who sing in choruses have academic success and valuable life skills.
4. The decline in choral singing opportunities for children and youth is a key area for concern.
