Why Choral Singing Builds Strong Bonds and Happier People
Research led by psychologist Nick Stewart of Bath University indicates that people who participate in a choir experience a greater sense of psychological well-being, brought about in part because they enjoy a greater feeling of togetherness and being part of a collective endeavor than others involved in different social activities.
As many of our singers will attest, singing with SBCS is one of the best gifts you can give your adult self. Being bathed every Wednesday night in the energy generated by the sound waves of 100 people singing at once is an incomparably uplifting and healthful experience. There’s nothing like that wall of sound. Couple that with the thrill of performing on Santa Barbara’s premier stages–the Granada and the Lobero Theatre–and touring to sing in exciting and historic venues around the world and you more fully understand why singers come back year after year and, yes, submit to the audition process to do it.
Auditions are August 20 and 21, 2016 by appointment. So what are you waiting for? Email us at email@example.com to arrange your appointment today!
