    Abstract:
    This is a 'study of a choir'; the author joined the choir for three months and participated in every aspect, from rehearsals, dinners, a meeting to a gig. They chatted to the members, sang with them and talked to the choir leader and manager about everything from the ethos of the choir, to whether meat was served often enough at dinner. It was the final project for the year 2017/8 at Trinity Laban and Open University as a participant on the Certificate in the Practice of Music Making.
    Notes:
    This forms the start of my interest in this field. I hope to continue as part of my MA Music (OU) exploring Arts on Prescription and Cultural Vitamins.
