Exploring the Experience of Community Choir Singing Among Youth

We are exploring the experience of community choir singing among youth (defined as between 16-29 years of age) who have faced various challenges in their lives, including mental health struggles, addictions, homelessness, exclusion, and discrimination. It’s the beginning of a program of research to gather the evidence regarding the degree to which community choir singing might be a protective factor in youth resilience and wellness.
