There are two music therapy-informed community choirs in Chico: The North State Therapy Choir (designed for people with Parkinson's disease) and Singing Through Brain Injury Choir. Both choirs are designed specifically to meet the needs of each group through singing, rhythm, and playing instruments. The choirs incorporate music, movement, breath, relaxation, and community to support quality of life and emotional well-being.
The Music Therapy Impact Fund (MTIF) facilitates music therapy programs in Chico and the surrounding areas through a grant program at the North Valley Community Foundation. The MTIF is currently supporting the Hospice Music Therapy Program and the North State Therapy Choir (for people with Parkinson's disease).
