Singing The Blues Away
Ealing men are invited to join in and learn a four-part harmony with Capital Chorus
An Ealing men’s Barbershop Choir is pioneering an imaginative way of helping people overcome the miseries of mid-winter.
The event will take place on the third Monday in January, starting on Monday, 21 January at Kingsdown Methodist Church, Northfield Avenue from 7.45pm till 10.15pm.
It's nicknamed Blue Monday because it’s so often seen as combining cold and gloomy weather with the full impact of a return to work after the Christmas festivities.
Scientific research has shown singing to have a number of important health benefits; it can exercise the brain and boost memory, and improve breathing, posture and muscle tension. Because singing releases endorphins it’s also a natural anti-depressant, and singing together can bolster confidence, widen your circle of friends and is good for mental health. No wonder the chorus feels so positive that taking a night out to learn a new song can help lift the seasonal gloom.
''Our chorus has a lot of fun, and we’re always very supportive of new singers. The song we choose to learn for Blue Monday won’t be too difficult. Anyone who can carry a tune should find it an exciting and rewarding experience, and I’m certain the final performance will lead to a real sense of achievement.''
