Please tune in for this captioned Zoom presentation of the NYC chapter of the Hearing Loss Association of America on December 1. Former professional viola player Betty Hauck will describe A Life in Music: Lost and Found. For 50 years, Betty enjoyed a rich and rewarding career- playing at the White House for the Kennedys and being in a string quartet with Yo-Yo Ma- until the day she realized 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.
