Melbourne Singers of Gospel (MSG) performs gospel, soul and songs of purpose across a range of genres with the transformative impact of a massed congregational choir. Directed by Dr Darren Wicks and accompanied by the cool jazz-blues sound of Andrew Ogburn, MSG aspires to high standards of technique, interpretation and movement and to demonstrate the benefits of singing together. This choir community attracts 100 singers from across Metropolitan Melbourne and as far as Hamilton, Geelong and Rosebud. www.msgchoir.com.au
When we sing, endorphins – the feel good hormone – are released making us happier, healthier and perhaps even sexier. As we continue to sing, oxytocin – the bonding hormone – also increases making us ready to meet new people and form new friendships. And, as we socialise, learn songs and vocal technique at rehearsal, we benefit from improved neuroplasticity meaning better memory and brain function. Although women everywhere have discovered these secrets and have joined choirs in droves, men are only now starting to value these benefits.The choir’s arms are always open to new applicants, but particularly men!
