Betty Hauck: A life in music lost & found
Saturday, September 22, 2018
For 50 years Betty Hauck enjoyed a rich and rewarding career as a professional violist, 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. The program is about one hour and includes Q&A at the end.
Highlights of her career include performing for the Kennedy's at the White House, playing in a string quartet with Yo-Yo Ma and, as a founding member of the Apple Hill Chamber Players, annual tours to the Middle East, performing and teaching young Palestinian and Jewish music students. She was also an orchestra member and soloist with Emmanuel Music in Boston for over 40 years.
