Abstract

Among other things, city parks are places for people to relax or go for a walk in a natural and beautiful environment. Usually removed from the chaos of the city, parks often satisfy the desires of many city-dwellers for a place of natural beauty. Quite often, they are an integral part of a community. In Chinese parks, people do various activities freely in this natural space, such as physical exercise, tai chi, chess, dancing and singing. When music comes to this environment, it can bring cheer and laughter, and can give people precious opportunities to express their feelings and consider the meaning of life. Recently, singing has become a familiar phenomenon in Chinese parks. More and more people go to the park with their singing books. They spontaneously form chorus groups, organize singing activities and have even attracted the attention of the government. The Jingshan choir is the earliest and most influential extensive music group to meet in Chinese parks. Studying this group has helped me to gain a clearer understanding of why so many people in the community choose singing as their music activity.
