Murray Symphony will perform a FREE concert for the community and will also welcome guest artist the Riverton Children’s Choir on Saturday, December 7, 2013 at 7:30 pm. In lieu of admission we request that audience members bring a winter clothing item (new or used) for the benefit of The Road Home, one of the largest homeless shelters in the state of Utah. Cash donations will also be accepted for their benefit.
In addition, Murray Symphony will welcome Hearing Loop technology to this concert! Hearing Loop solution offers individuals with the “invisible disability” of hearing loss the ability to experience full, rich interactions in just about any setting. Listen’s Loop solution delivers intelligible sound directly to an individual’s T-Coil hearing aid creating a personalized listening experience. Users can enjoy a discreet listening experience without background noise, competing sounds, reverberation and other acoustic distortions that reduce clarity of sound. Hearing Loops will be installed in the auditorium to benefit those that need hearing assistance.
Hearing loss affects one in seven of us, a number that is increasing as the population ages. Induction Loops are widespread throughout the world but only recently has the technology started to be installed in North America.
Here’s the article I was telling you about that features composer Richard Einhorn: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/10/24/science/24loops.html?_r=4&hpw&
Hearingloop.org has also a great video of a child experiencing a hearing loop at home for the first time – it’s very touching. The site also has great information about hearing loss and its issues. http://www.hearingloop.org/SoundDemo.html
Murray Symphony is honored to welcome Hearing Loop to its concert and at the same time perform with guest artists of The Riverton Children’s Choir while also benefiting the homeless population through The Road Home.
Make sure you come celebrate the season with Murray Symphony on Saturday, December 7, 2013, 7:30 pm, Murray High School Auditorium (5440 South State Street, Murray – use south parking lot for easier access to the auditorium).
