For over a decade, science has been hard at work trying to explain why singing has such a calming / energising effect on people.
Numerous studies demonstrate that singing releases endorphins, and oxytocin, which in turn relieves stress and anxiety, and which are linked to feelings of trust and bonding.

For the competition, combining with Wessex Harmony, and some from Tudor Roses , meant that we all gained so much more from the European Barbershop Convention. Held at the Bournemouth International Centre, at the end of October, we were pleased to come 16th out of 28 British choruses. In total, 46 choruses entered.
Singing Love Me, as performed by OC Times, and Once Upon A Time, as sung by Keepsake, we thoroughly enjoyed our six minutes on stage, even if we were the last to perform. Apart from watching other choruses,( all that talent ) our week-end came with fringe benefits, i/e, shopping. But oh, those hills ! We had all our exercise in two days, much cheaper than the Gym!
I found this picture awhile ago and thought that I would like to share it.
