Community Choirs Benefit Older Adults

Grantmakers in the Arts recently highlighted the results of a research study featuring Community Music Center’s Community of Voices (COV) program. COV is a cross-sector approach to developing a high-quality, culturally responsive, older-adult choir program designed to help reduce loneliness and increase interest in life for older adults in the San Francisco Bay area. The article includes a link to the program’s manual for creating similar choirs. Aroha Philanthropies supported COV for several years.
