On March 17, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds declared a statewide public health disaster emergency in response to the state's coronavirus outbreak. The proclamation includes the restriction of in-person gatherings of 10 or more people along with the temporary closing of several businesses in the arts, culture and entertainment sector.

Most of the public gatherings listed on the Hoopla calendar are canceled or postponed through the end of April. Please check with event organizers to confirm the status of events you see listed.

A virtual option has been created to post and search for those events and programs that are offering an online gathering opportunity for our Hoopla readers. Enjoy!

Event Description

Parkinsingers is a 45-minute vocal exercise group for those with Parkinson's and their caregivers. There are MANY benefits to singing! These include: improving volume and clarity when speaking, strengthening muscles involved in swallowing and breathing, increasing mood, providing opportunities for self-expression, and of course having fun! Each class we begin with vocal warm ups and then sing through favorite songs. No previous singing experience required. Taught by Certified Music Therapist.
