Summit of Older Adult Choirs a Smash Hit

Summit 2Last Friday CMC and the Community of Voices choir program presented their first ever Summit of Older Adult Choirs on our Concert Hall. Four choirs – nearly 100 older adults – joined their voices together as a group for the first time and sang in their individual choirs as well. Highlights on the program were songs sung in Tagalog and Zapotec and an original song written by a member of Coro Solera, put to music by Jennifer Peringer. The Summit was directed by Martha Rodriguez-Salazar and accompanied by Jennifer Peringer and was followed by a spirited, gigantic pot luck lunch in our courtyard!

CMC at Cinco de Mayo in the Mission

The Cinco de Mayo Festival was held on Valencia Street in CincoDeMayothe Mission District this year. Singers in CMC’s Coro Solera (Mission Neighborhood Center) and Coro de la Treinta (30th Street Senior Center), and Community of Voices choirs at Mission Neighborhood Center and Centro Latino de San Francisco sang that afternoon for a great crowd.

Community Music Center’s Mission District Young Musicians Program hit the main stage with "musica bailable" - very danceable music - including favorites from Mexico, Colombia and Cuba.  View photos by Jiale Zhi.

Later that afternoon in the Kids Zone, CMC faculty and students from the Mission District Young Musicians Program demonstrated Latin Percussion, Guitar, Violin, Cello, Accordion, and Flute in an instrument petting zoo!
