The Cape Symphony announces the return of the free “Sing for Joy” group ensemble, beginning Monday, July 26. Individuals living with Parkinson’s disease are invited to participate in “Sing for Joy,” designed to help maintain vocal strength, build community through singing, and experience joy through music. Family members, friends, and caregivers are welcome.

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive nervous system disorder. Multiple studies have shown the therapeutic benefits of singing programs for Parkinson’s patients, including improvement in vocal strength and quality, respiratory control, and mood.

“Sing for Joy” is led by Maggi Bossi, former director of the Chatham Chorale. There is no tuition for this program and drop-ins are welcome.

“Sing for Joy” meets at the Barnstable Adult Community Center, 825 Falmouth Road in Hyannis. The series will run July 26 to August 30 from 10:30 to 11:30 AM.

Registration is available on the symphony’s website, through e-mail at or by calling 508-362-2772
