Tremble Clefs was founded in Scottsdale Arizona in 1994. In 2018 we incorporated and were granted nonprofit status by the IRS.
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.
In 2019, Tremble Clefs Arizona received a community grant from the Parkinson's Foundation. The funds of the grant are earmarked for the establishment of two new Tremble Clefs in Maricopa County.
In 2021, Tremble Clefs Arizona received a Parkinson's Community Grants Award from the Parkinson's Foundation to support the formation of a Tremble Clefs group in Mesa, Arizona.
Tremble Clefs Arizona appreciates the support we have received from the Parkinson's Foundation. We appreciate all donations.
