Why We Sing: Jon Arterton and Bob Morris

March 25, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free – $32

Why and how does such a basic part of our lives—something that begins with lullabies—comfort, inspire and heal so effectively? When we sing the brain releases oxytocin and dopamine, the endorphins that promote feelings of well-being. Neurologist Oliver Sacks and others have written about the therapeutic power of music and singing, and how it retrieves memory and expression. Recent studies show that singing in choirs promotes physical and emotional health as well.

Resident author Bob Morris and One City Chorus co-founder Jon Arterton will give a lively talk at the Museum of Fine Arts on Saturday March 25 at 1 pm. They will discuss everything from the therapeutic value of singing to why it’s okay to sing even when you can’t always hit the right notes. The choir will sing, audience participation will be encouraged, and voices and spirits are sure to be lifted.
