En­joy fel­low­ship of male voice choir

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

A Ruther­glen man is en­cour­ag­ing male res­i­dents to fol­low his lead and join the Glas­gow Phil­har­monic Male Voice Choir.

Billy Ross joined the choir nine years ago.

An hon­ourary vice pres­i­dent at Ruther­glen Bowl­ing Club, Billy said his de­ci­sion to join the choir was one of the best he has ever made.

He added:“Re­cently there has been an up­surge in in­ter­est as to the health ben­e­fits of cho­ral singing. It ap­pears that singing is good for you and the fel­low­ship of be­ing in a choir im­proves our well­be­ing.

“In ad­di­tion, the breath­ing re­quire­ment in singing and use of mem­ory has ben­e­fi­cial ef­fects on our daily lives.

“The sci­en­tific in­ves­ti­ga­tions into cho­ral singing have been re­ported in many daily jour­nals and the con­clu­sions have been sur­pris­ingly pos­i­tive. They say that there is ev­i­dence that cho­ral singing can sig­nif­i­cantly af­fect and im­prove the de­bil­i­tat­ing ef­fects of de­men­tia and other af­flic­tions.”

The choir is on the look­out for new mem­bers.

They re­hearse in Ade­laide Place Bap­tist Church, Bath Street in Glas­gow ev­ery Tues­day from Septem­ber to May from 6.45-9.15pm.

A spe­cial open evening on Tues­day, Septem­ber 20 where in­ter­ested peo­ple can speak with all the mu­sic team and of­fi­cials with no obli­ga­tion.
