Research shows that singing is extremely beneficial for our mental and physical health. The neuroscience of singing shows that when we sing our neurotransmitters connect in new and different ways, firing up the right temporal lobe of our brain, releasing endorphins that make us smarter, healthier, happier and more creative. When we sing with other people this effect is amplified. Interaction with different generations is also shown to be mentally invigorating and emotionally satisfying. Parkland Fredericton in partnership with the Ville Cooperative’s after school program is pairing the two on Wednesday February 6 at 2:30 pm. If you love singing and children then then please join us in the Garrison Lounge of Regent Hall with piano accompaniment. No talent or ability required.:)
