Ten HSE workplace choirs will perform in the HSE Sing for Wellbeing Concert in the University of Limerick Concert Hall on Sunday 21 October 2018. Part of Healthy Ireland and Staff Health and Wellbeing, the choirs will perform to celebrate the impact of singing on their health and wellbeing.
The following HSE choirs will perform on the day: AMNCH Tallaght Hospital, SCRUBS (Cork University Hospital), Tullamore Staff Choir, Naas Workplace Choir, Heart & Soul Choir (Mullingar), Merlin Miscellany (Saolta), Ennis Hospital Singers (UL Hospital Group), Chimers (Limerick Mental Health Services), Sligo University Hospital (Saolta) and Galway University Hospital Choral Society (Saolta).
In what can be a challenging work environment, singing in a choir can help alleviate stress, create social connection among work colleagues, improve mental wellbeing and offer retired colleagues the chance to stay connected. For this reason, Health Promotion and Improvement sponsored UL Irish World Academy of Music and Dance to carry out research into the impact of choirs on HSE Staff Health and Wellbeing. This research was led by Dr Hilary Moss at the Music Therapy Department and the findings will be launched at the event.
Date: Sunday 21 October 2018
Location: University Concert Hall (UCH), University of Limerick
