A NATIONAL campaign to promote singing has been launched by the Association of Irish Choirs (AOIC) – operating out of Plassey. ‘Sing Ireland’ will run throughout October and feature contributions from well known singers and choirs around Ireland across social media.
Dermot O’Callaghan, CEO observes: ‘We know that singing is a big part of many Irish people’s lives and is life enhancing. There are enormous numbers of Irish people involved in singing throughout the Island and during October we will celebrate that.”
“Sing Ireland is a campaign designed to draw attention to singing in Ireland. It also encourages those who may not have tried it out previously to get involved. Singing is a joyful activity that has numerous and quantifiable positive affects on a person’s health and wellbeing”.
Everyone is asked to share their love of singing on social media using the hashtag #SingIreland.
AOIC has partnered on recent research led by Dr. Hilary Moss of the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, UL, showing how singing can improve a person’s health and wellbeing.
