Enjoy fellowship of male voice choir
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.
