Need Good Quote for Health Benefits from LIVE Performance

Aloha!
 
I am looking for a good, short quote to answer this question:  "What, if any, health benefits can one attribute to attending a LIVE performance?"  (verses just listening to a recording)   
 
Does data show that there are more health benefits from experiencing a LIVE performance vs. just listening to a recording?
 
Any one have a good answer out there?  It would help if it were choral-specific, but it doesn't have to be.  
 
I want/need to make the case for LIVE PERFORMANCE... specific to benefits regarding our well-being and health.   I tried going to the Music Therapy home page, but could not find anything specific there - my lack of knowledge, I surmise.  
 
Mahalo,
 
Susan
