High Note (article from Good Housekeeping, November 2016)
‘Sign up to sing in a choir and you’ll not only reduce the levels of the stress hormone cortisol, you’ll also boost cytokines, proteins released by the immune system that help fight off illness, according to a Royal College of Music study. Singing was also identified as one of the top 10 mood boosters in University of Sussex research – better even than shopping!’
