Abstract

Recently there has been a growing interest in group singing for people living with COPD, supported by a number of research studies which provide some evidence of the benefits of this intervention. Worcester’s ‘Sing4Breath’ COPD choir was formed in 2014, initially consisting of people with COPD who had attended the local pulmonary rehabilitation programme. The choir is now self-funding, is open to anyone with a respiratory problem and employs a talented and exciting choir leader to lead the sessions. Participants do not need to be able to ‘sing in tune’ to join, although members report being surprised at the lovely sound they make collectively.
