Many Voices, Many Visions, "Hearing Loop Technology/Gateways Music Festival"
November 20, 2016 —
This week we examine hearing loop technology.
Recently, the Little Theatre in Rochester installed a hearing loop in one of its theaters to help patrons who are hard of hearing enjoy films.
It's estimated more than 20 percent of people suffer from hearing loss. We'll learn how technology is helping improve their quality of life.
Also this week-- The Gateways Music Festival. The annual festival celebrates classical musicians of color from all over the United States.
It's announced a partnership with the Eastman School of Music to help promote classical music education among minority students. We'll meet the festival's artistic director, Lee Koonce.
