Let's All Sing

 



It’s back to school time! FVS will start our fall learning experience (rehearsals) on Thursday, September 8, for the men, and on Monday, September 12, for the women. Normal rehearsal time is from 3:45 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

However, on the first day of rehearsal for each group, show up at 3:30 p.m. so we have more time for paying dues, updating contact information, and distributing music.

On the first day, bring a check for $125 payable to Fearrington Village Singers and proof of vaccination. Masks are optional. You should also bring a pencil to mark up your music. Please don’t mark up your music with Crayolas, highlighters, or permanent markers.

CDs of the music will be available for $1 per CD.

How Singing Influences Our Health


The Fearrington Village Singers want to share the following benefits of singing—whether you sing in the shower or want to join us in the fall (if the pandemic allows). Experts recommend singing for at least 5 minutes daily, equating the benefits with that of physical exercise.  (Adapted from AdiDisha Yoga.)

·       Singing communicates to the body the “right” vibes that increase our vitality

·       When singing, special chemicals release in the human brain that help us feel peace and joy

·       Singing improves blood circulation in the throat area, which has a beneficial effect on vocal cords, tonsils, and numerous lymph nodes in the throat—and therefore significantly increases local immunity (in other words, we rarely catch colds)

·       Singing improves the blood supply, which leads to brain activity intensification—the brain starts working more intensely, memory improves, any information is easier to perceive

·       Singing is very useful for lung diseases, as it creates respiratory gymnastics that promote the development of chest and proper breathing, while significantly reducing the number of acute lung conditions

·       With regular singing, the level of immunoglobulin and hydrocortisone, which are signs of good immunity, increase in the body

·       Singing has led to methods that treat stuttering and help improve diction

·       Singing is used even in the fight against obesity—when nourished people still feel hunger pangs, singing two or three songs instead of eating helps to alleviate the urge to eat

·       Singing improves blood supply in the head and generally rejuvenates the body, improving skin condition
