MBA students from Brock’s Goodman School of Business will be spreading holiday cheer next week at St. Catharines Hospital.Fifteen students have formed a choir and will be carolling in the hospital lobby for patients and their families at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 21.The Goodman School of Business has partnered with Choir Nation, a company launched earlier this year that helps organizations form company choirs and sing music as team-building exercises.The company was co-founded by Todd Green, assistant professor of marketing at Goodman and Murray Foster, bass player for Canadian folk rock band Great Big Sea.Working under the conductor’s baton of Choir Director Sarah Jerrom, the students have been perfecting their pitch for four weeks now and are geared up to sing the three holiday tunes they have prepared.“They’ve had a great learning attitude from the very first rehearsal and have been working very hard over the past month,” said Jerrom.“They now have this opportunity to perform as singers, some for the very first time. It’s a wonderful opportunity for them to both reduce stress and combine their voices as a team, and then pass that positive energy on to their listeners,” she said.MBA student Shakti Pradhan jumped at the chance to be part of this unique initiative.“It’s been an incredible experience because Sarah is so supportive of us. She easily understands her students and improvises a lot based on how we are doing and designs the choir so that everyone can be heard,” said Pradhan.“We are doing this for a great cause so I was excited to join the choir. The holiday season sometimes means patients need extra cheer. It’s also a very good team sport because our group has to bond in order to sing together,” he said.The Brock community is invited to join the team’s on-campus performance in the Canadian Tire bridge between Taro and Plaza buildings at noon Monday, Dec. 19. Any donations collected will support the Goodman Graduate Business Council in sending a team of MBA students to MBA Games in January, where they will compete in academic, athletic and spirit challenges against their peers from across Canada. read more
