Our Changing World - CeleBRation Choir

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:32 pm on 24 September 2012

If you find it hard to speak, then you'd imagine it would be even harder to sing. But for many people living with stroke or Parkinson's disease the opposite turns out to be true. Auckland's CeleBRation choir was established in 2009 as a social singing group, and it's now become the focus of research to measure the benefits to choir members from their regular singing and socialising. Alison Ballance is at Auckland University's Centre for Brain Research.
