Tremble Clefs was founded in Scottsdale Arizona in 1994. In 2018 we incorporated and were granted nonprofit status by the IRS. Before the pandemic, our four choral groups met weekly in different locations in Maricopa County.
Voice loss, decreased voice volume, voice with a monotone quality are common symptoms of Parkinson's disease. Regular participation in our singing groups strengthens the vocal chords. Participation keeps members active and engaged, resulting in new-found energy.
