According to a December 2009 study by Chorus America, an estimated 42.6 million people in the U.S. sing in more than 270,000 choirs today—that’s far more than participate in any other performing art. Singing in a group such as a community choir or a school or church choir, is strongly correlated with qualities that are associated with success throughout life, the study finds. Greater civic involvement, discipline, and teamwork are just a few of the attributes fostered by singing with a choral ensemble.
A related report from the National Endowment for the Arts (October 2009) states, “Americans who create or perform art are more civically active than the general U.S. adult population. More than 65 percent of adults who sang in choirs did volunteer or charity work and a full 60 percent attended community meetings. These rates not only exceed the national averages, but they also surpass volunteer and community-meeting rates reported by performing arts and art museum attendees.”
