SPECIAL SERIES – Here’s a Health to the Company: Social Singing, Health and Well-Being
November 15, 2019 at 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Theatre 1, 10am-4pm
A special event will be held to gather the energy of
researchers at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance in
the field of social singing. Social singing is a common research
interest across many faculties at the Academy. This seminar
will concentrate energy and pool knowledge regarding
the health and well-being benefits of social singing, from
the perspectives of music therapy, community music, voice
studies, traditional song, social justice and more. The three
themes of the seminar will be (i) singing and social connection
(local, global and virtual); (ii) the health and well-being aspects
of social singing and (iii) what constitutes good practice in
social singing in Ireland.
