Directed by Rita Lackey, the CMC IT Bookman Older Adult Choir sings gospel, jazz, R&B, soul and popular songs. Meeting for weekly rehearsals at the IT Bookman Community Center in San Francisco’s Oceanview neighborhood, the choir performs at many of the center’s special events, as well as out in the community. The IT Bookman Neighborhood Center is a nonprofit resource for multiple programs that serve the Oceanview, including nutrition, health screenings and arts programs. This ensemble is one of 15 tuition-free neighborhood choirs that has grown out of collaborations between the Community Music Center and senior/neighborhood centers around San Francisco, providing the many personal, social, artistic and quality-of-life benefits that musical activity can bring to older adults. Now in its 101st year making high-quality music accessible to people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities (regardless of financial means), the Community Music Center is a nonprofit institution with campuses in San Francisco’s Mission and Richmond neighborhoods.
