Sing to Inspire: The Power of Group Singing

Sing to Inspire: Nov. 9, 2015

So often, I find myself exhausted and detached walking into some rehearsals and many times leave completely recharged and connected. A recent conversation with music psychologist, Daniel Weinstein helped me better understand this phenomenon.

"As you sing, especially with a group of people, the body releases endorphins.", said Weinstein. In today's episode of Sing to Inspire, we discuss commonly accepted theories on group singing and take a deeper look into the latest research. To hear more of the interview, click the audio player above.
