More info: There is something unique about the members of this choir: All of them are seniors living with hearing loss. One of the most challenging aspects of living with age-related hearing loss is losing the ability to follow conversation in a noisy environment (e.g., a cocktail party).
Several researchers have recently proposed  that singing may be a good means of supporting changes in the brain that support this ability. Singing in a choir requires participants to precisely track and discriminate multiple sources of complex sounds, just as one must do in a noisy environment.

Our participation in World Voice Day (2015) will mark the first public performance of our choir.
