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
