    Participation in choir

    Benefits of Singing in the Choir
    Benefits of choir

    Let’s hear it for the choir!  In 2009, Chorus America published a report on the impact of choral singing in America.  The Choral Impact Study is a document every director involved in the choral arts should be  familiar with, as it has far-reaching implications for music in both school and community settings.  

    The Impact Study contains information worth sharing with music booster groups and all choral organization supporters.   School boards and administrators will find valuable research supporting the fact that choir participation is closely associated with good citizenship and academic achievement.  

    The report is presented in clear, understandable language, and is based on sound research.  As we continue celebrating Music in our Schools Month, take a moment to share this important information with others in your community to build support for your programs.  Pepper supports Chorus America through membership in the organization.
