Congratulations on a wonderful concert!
Voices of Change: A Tribute to Nelson Mandela features singers from all of our performing ensembles ‒ Concert Chorus, Chamber Ensemble, Young Men's Ensemble, Bel Canto Chorus, and Treble Chorus, plus a special appearance by students in our Prima Voce Prep Class.
From Bach and Purcell to South African folk songs, with texts of hope and peace, we honor the global Voices of Change, including Nelson Mandela, whose 100th birthday we celebrate this year.
Thank you to everyone who made this performance a success!

"Choral singing calms heart rates and boosts endorphin levels. It improves lung function. It increases pain thresholds and reduces the need for pain medication. Group singing ... increases the production of immunoglobulin, making it easier to fight infections. ... [C]horal singing delivers a significant boost to positive mood. It also lifts self-esteem while reducing feelings of stress and symptoms of depression. In enhances one’s sense of purpose and meaning and increases sensitivity toward others. And these effects come not from singing per se but from singing in a group."
