Bach’s Lunch Zoom Lecture: 10 Reasons Why You Should Be Singing
May 4, 2023 @ 12:10 pm - 12:50 pmFree
On Thursday, May 4, Beth Armstrong will present a zoom lecture, Ten Reasons Why You Should Be Singing. As a life-long choral singer, Beth can attest to its benefits on an anecdotal level. However, there has been a great deal of research done on the physical benefits of singing in a group. She will touch on some of this evidence, encouraging one and all, regardless of training, education, or “talent,” to raise their voice with others in song.
