*It gives members a sense of pride and self-worth
*It instills beneficial posture and breathing techniques
*It develops better habits of good enunciation
*It reminds us that there are no short cuts to excellence; careful preparation leads to reaching goals
*It teaches an historical perspective through music and texts written during various periods of history
*It reminds us of the positive impact a Choirdedicated group can make beyond that which is possible for an individual….the value of teamwork
*It conveys that leadership, demeanor and good attitude make a significant contribution to the success of a group
*It adds beauty and aesthetic depth
*It provides a healthy cultural and creatively artistic balance
*It develops poise under pressure
*It is a foundation for a lifetime of enjoyment in music
