A Life in Music Lost & Found
My Journey as a Musician with Hearing Loss
A “Talk & Play” presentation by
Betty Hauck, violin and viola
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 educating 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.
