Making Waves – UVic’s Virtual Research Symposium:

8 papers about Voices in Motion

We enjoyed having the students from the University of Victoria attend rehearsals at our Gordon Head ViM Choir. These students, along with others from Dr. Stuart MacDonald’s psychology class, were involved in research projects, analyzing and compiling data from the Voices in Motion Choirs.

Their findings were recently presented (virtually) through the Making Waves Platform. If you are interested in some of their findings, please follow the links:
