Why Choruses Matter

The choral advocacy group Chorus America has regularly commissioned studies on how choirs impact the lives of people in the United States. The results are a stunning reminder of the positive impact that singing in a choir can have. 

Among the key findings:

    • Choral singing is a significant part of American life, with more than 54 million Americans singing today.
    • Adults who sing in choruses report significant personal benefits, including feeling less lonely and more connected to others.
    • Choral singers are remarkably strong contributors to their communities.
    • Older choral singers report both a better quality of life and better overall health than the general public.1
