Singers from all four of our Tremble Clefs music therapy groups combined to perform at the United Church of Sun City on Sunday afternoon, Nov. 20th.
Sun Joo Lee and Mutsumi Mori, accompanist, are pictured at the right. Ms. Lee is currently studying for a doctoral degree in Iowa. We were delighted she arranged her schedule to conduct this significant annual concert.
The concert began with welcome words from Senior Pastor Brady Abel and Minister of Music, Alan Paulson. Sun Joo explained how our music therapy sessions help people who have Parkinson's disease. Songs included award-winning "We Go On Day by Day" written by our own Beth Lee. It was sung by a trio: Beth Lee, Kirk Hall and Perry Heilman.
Our members were recorded singing “We Go On Day By Day” written by our own Beth Lee. Tremble Clefs Arizona joined in this virtual concert with two Tremble Clefs groups from Southern California, the Orange County TC and the San Diego TC. In September 2020, singers were photographed and recorded by Iowa University students. That video is here for you to watch and enjoy. The song has a powerful message. Lyrics are in the Singers section of the website.
Check out this great video. You will see the directors of choral groups for people with Parkinson's disease. Part of the PD Virtual Singing Festival, it premiered on Sept. 30, 2020. Sun Joo Lee, our TC AZ Music Director, is one of the singers.
Many of our members accepted an invitation to participate in a virtual PD singing festival. We were invited in the summer of 2020 to join this project by Elizabeth Stegemöller, an Associate Professor at Iowa State University of Science and Technology. Dr. Stegemöller has researched the benefits of singing for persons with Parkinson’s disease (PD) and leads a PD singing group in Ames, Iowa. “What the World Needs Now is Love” was the song of the mega Virtual PD Choral Production.
