My Journey as a Musician with Hearing Loss

 A “Talk & Play” presentation by Betty Hauck, viola & violinviolin-sm1

For 50 years, Betty enjoyed a rich and rewarding career as a professional violist—until the day she realized that she had to retire because of progressive hearing loss.

For three years, she completely turned her back on music. In this “Talk & Play” presentation, she will tell the story of how various twists and turns led her back into sharing the joy of music while educat-ing and advocating for those with hearing loss.

Her talk will be punctuated by short musical selections on both violin and viola. The program is about one hour and includes Q&A at the end.

Saturday, September 22nd  , 3:00-4:45 pm,  
Hingham Library, 66 Leavitt St, Hingham, MA

Highlights of Betty’s career include performing for the Kennedys at the White House,BettyHauck playing in a string quartet with Yo-Yo Ma and, as a founding member of the Apple Hill Chamber Players, touring the Middle East annually, performing and teaching young Palestinian and Jewish music students.

Betty was recently featured in an NPR story about musicians and hearing loss: http://www.wbur.org/hereandnow/2018/04/17/classical-musicians-hearing-loss
