Support great choral music! We’re very lucky to be doing what we love, and we cannot do it without support from generous people like you! Supporting the arts is a necessity in our culture. Research investigating the link between music and intelligence concluded that music training is far greater than computer instruction in improving children’s abstract reasoning skills. (Source: Shaw, Rauscher, Levine, Wright, Dennis and Newcomb, “Music training causes long-term enhancement of preschool children’s spatial-temporal reasoning,” Neurological Research, vol. 19, February 1997). Students who take courses in music and the arts perform higher on the SATs. The study of music in particular instills discipline, focus and concentration in students, traits that will serve them well in other areas.
