THE POWER OF MUSIC
Because sound waves penetrate our bodies, everyone is quite literally touched by music. Before birth, we are submerged in a world of sound, of breath and heartbeat, of rhythm and vibration. Music is a part of who we are; it has the power to soothe and to heal, to excite and motivate, to move us to joy or tears.
Choral music is especially powerful and affects both listener and singer. Whether a simple mother's lullaby, fans singing the national anthem before a sporting event, or the all-encompassing sound of a mass choir with orchestra, our stress is reduced, our troubles eased. We are refreshed and the benefits go beyond the music itself.

IN AN INTERVIEW
English composer John Rutter explained, “Choral music
goes to the very heart of our humanity, our sense of
community, and our souls.
You express, when you
sing, your soul in song.
And when you get
together with a group
of other singers, it
becomes more than
the sum of the parts.
Singers are human
beings in harmony.
That’s a lesson for
our times and
for all time."
