From January 2019, we will be launching our brand-new daytime ‘Health & Happiness’ choir.

Are you over 50 and looking for something new for 2019?

Singing in a choir is beneficial in many ways. As well as improving our sense of happiness and wellbeing, group singing also has positive effects on physical health, which can improve life expectancy and quality of life.

As an aerobic activity, singing is particularly beneficial for improving breathing, posture and muscle tension. There’s also some evidence to suggest that music can play a role in sustaining a healthy immune system.

And it’s not just a physical workout: music-making exercises the brain as well as the body, improving both concentration and memory. Group singing increases happiness, reduces stress and helps forge social connections – all of which play a vital role in maintaining health.

But what if you can’t sing? Everyone can sing (however much you protest). Very few people actually have no musical ability.

The Coda Health and Happiness Choir is for over 50’s who want to sing (even if they think they can’t!)

The choir will cover a wide range of songs, starting with some classic pop and well-known standards, then moving onto some more modern songs and possibly the odd showtune!
You’ll also learn a broad range of musical/vocal techniques and sessions will incorporate fun, accessible breathing and vocal exercises.

These sessions are not suitable for the very elderly or those in poor health or with chronic illness. The choir aims to help maintain good health and offer the opportunity to engage with music and the social benefits it brings.

The Coda Health & Happiness Choir will run on a Thursday from 10.30am to 12pm and costs £5 per session.

These are drop-in, pay as you go sessions, so there is no long-term commitment, although we’re sure you will love the choir enough to want to come every week.

Sessions will be run by Kimberley Moss. Kim is a very highly experienced and knowledgable vocal tutor and choir leader with a wealth of expertise in the physiology of singing and the health benefits it brings.

Belonging to a singing group is good for body and soul and The Coda Health & Happiness Choir provides an inclusive and cost-effective means to improve your health, wellbeing, and social life!
