Biography: Sing with Us Wrexham are one of a network of 18 choirs run through the charity Tenovus Cancer Care. The choirs consist of cancer patients, cancer survivors, carers and those bereaved through cancer. The Sing with Us project began in 2010 as an ongoing research study into the benefits of singing upon people affected by cancer.
The results from the initial study showed that singing in the choir over a period of just 3 months people reported reduced feelings of loneliness, anxiety and depression as well as showing physical improvements in their circulation and breathing and some patients even claimed to have less perception of pain.
Tenovus Cancer Care have since taken this research to the next level and latest results from research done in partnership with the Royal College of music London showed that just one hour of singing has a biological impact on the body, reducing stress hormones and boosting the immune system. The Sing with Us Wrexham choir have been running for over 5 years & perform everywhere from local community events, village fairs and supermarket foyers to much bigger events including conferences, a recent concert with Britain’s Got Talent star Paul Potts and a mass performance with our 18 other choirs in St David’s Hall in Cardiff. The Llangollen Eisteddfod is one of the highlights of the year for our Wrexham choir.
