Singers from the West Side Tremble Clefs, Sun City, and the Original Tremble Clefs, Scottsdale, drove to Venture Out RV Resort to join our newest Tremble Clefs - the Mesa Tremble Clefs!
Sun Joo Lee the Music Director of Tremble Clefs Arizona made a guest appearance to speak and lead the group in a couple of songs. Interim Music Director Kiersten Jungbluth, who had been working with the group, directed the concert. José Salazar was the accompanist.
The concert was held in the Cabana Room of Venture Out RV Resort in Mesa on a beautiful spring day, March 13th. An appreciative audience filled the room. The concert included such favorities as Sweet Caroline, Don't Fence Me In, You Make Me Feel So Young and America The Beautiful. Often the audience joined in. It was an outstanding performance.
"We participants in Tremble Clefs share a common goal: we want to continue to strengthen our resolve, our voice, and our health. Singing in the concert with others was enjoyable, and seemed to bring joy to others. I'm looking foward to next year."
"The concert was so much fun. I'm glad we found out about Tremble Clefs. Next year I'm sure we'll have more singers. We need to have the annual concert in a bigger room!"

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.
