The first group of seniors to be part of a UCSF study on how being in a choir may help aging adults – is graduating from their year singing with the study.

For the last 12 months they’ve been meeting at the Mission Neighborhood Center every Friday.

Friday May 9th the Community of Voices Choir will perform at the Summit of Older Adult Choirs. The event is free. It begins at 1 p.m. at the Community Music Center Concert Hall. You can read more about the event HERE.

  1. It`s good to see the People sing – Music is the best medicine to staying alive and well!

    I like your series very much.I

  2. I love this! Seniors and Latinos are the largest growing community segment in California AND finding activities (instead of pills and procedures) to improve their mental, physical, and social health will be a huge part of the next 40 years. What a great video, really captures their spirit and enjoyment! I hope this program goes on long past 5 years. Great reporting, whorls have never known about it!
