I have Parkinsons Disease. One day there will be a cure. In the meantime, I want to help slow down the progression of at least a couple of PD symptoms. And I’m asking you to help me.
Singing is excellent therapy for strengthening throat muscles. This encourages people with PD to “build back” their voice so they can be heard. Stronger throat muscles also makes choking less hazardous.
Plus, singing is fun! It builds camaraderie and exposes people to all different styles of music!
The Oakville Parkinsons Choir is one of many choirs around the world. Existing choirs in Toronto and Hamilton are too far to travel from here for many people with PD. Building a choir in Oakville fills an important geographical gap.
