Arguably the most vulnerable component to the human instrument is our voice. Ironically, For most of human history people sang together, and it wasn’t seen as a competition or a contest; it was a joyful communal experience. One of the hormones we generate when we sing is oxytocin; a hormone that makes it possible for us to bond. So when you sing, you bond with the people around you and, in a group setting, with the people you are singing with. Sing For Pure Joy! is part of the Ubuntu (“I am because we are”) choir network, a global movement to reclaim our birthright to song.
