Tremble Clefs San Diego To Host "Shake, Rattle and Rock" Virtual Benefit Concert on April 29
Parkinson's Singing Group to Perform at Rock and Roll San Diego
By: Tremble Clefs San Diego
The Tremble Clefs San Diego have typically performed live at various events around San Diego as part of their fundraising efforts but were canceled due to concerns over the Covid-19 pandemic.
The concert will be live-streamed from Rock and Roll San Diego and will be shown on the Tremble Clefs San Diego website as well as their social media networks. The concert is free for viewers to watch and they will be taking donations on the website. During the concert, guests will have opportunities to donate and can even participate in the silent auction with all proceeds benefiting the non-profit's singing therapy programs directly here in San Diego.
"We are so excited to bring a Tremble Clefs' concert back to the San Diego community," states Tremble Clefs president Karen Hesley. "It's such a unique opportunity to see members of all three of our locations perform together on one stage while raising funds to support the Parkinson's community through vocal therapy and reaching out to a larger national and international audience."

About Parkinson's Disease
Affecting an estimated one million Americans and 10 million worldwide, Parkinson's disease is the second-most common neurodegenerative disease after Alzheimer's and is the 14th-leading cause of death in the United States. It is associated with a progressive loss of motor control (e.g., shaking or tremor at rest and lack of facial expression), voice issues such as breathiness and loss of volume, as well as non-motor symptoms (e.g., depression and anxiety). There is no cure for Parkinson's and 60,000 new cases are diagnosed each year in the United States alone.
About The Tremble Clefs San Diego
The Tremble Clefs therapeutic singing program provides members a number of therapeutic and social benefits. Focus is on breathing exercises, louder voice volume and wider pitch range to address some of the most serious voice symptoms found in people with Parkinson's. One typical characteristic is a soft, breathy voice. Other symptoms may include slurring and monotone. People with Parkinson's Disease can suffer from slowness of movement and therefore reduced activity and sometimes social isolation.
