 Choir Singing can Boost Mental Health: Study

Singing in a choir can be beneficial for the mind, reveals a new study.

An online survey of 375 people, which was carried on solo singers, choir singers and team sports players, found that all three activities yielded high levels of psychological well-being, but choristers were benefited the most, the Daily Express reported.

The poll found that choral singers also regarded their choirs as more coherent or "meaningful" than the sports players viewed their teams.

According to Oxford Brookes University's Nick Stewart, who led the study, the research suggested joining a choir could be a cost-effective way to improve people's well-being.

The study was presented at the annual meeting of the British Psychological Society's Division of Clinical Psychology in York.
