CGCC offers Choral Union class
The Columbia Gorge Community College is offering a Choral Union class this spring, starting April 2.
According to a college press release, studies show choral singing improves mood and decreases stress, depression and anxiety. It also can lower blood pressure, raise blood oxygen levels, elevate immunity, give a higher pain threshold and strengthen respiratory muscles.
The Choral Union is a non-auditioned choir open to all community members. Check it out at cgcc.edu/schedule.
