Why do I sing in a choir?
Half of the young choristers began singing in a choir through intrinsic motivation: they simply like to sing. One is five joined a choir for cognitive reasons: they want to learn to sing better. The majority carry on singing in a choir for the same intrinsic reason: they still enjoy doing it.
When asked why young people join their choirs, the choir leaders gave much the same reasons as the young people themselves: first and foremost, because they like to sing.
