“I had expected to learn more on hearing impaired people’s ability to improve their impairment; but instead it delivered music to them. (It) was accomplished wonderfully. Utterly superb; great interaction. A rare treat.”
Rediscovering Music is a unique program devised and presented by the CSO that offers especially engineered, interactive chamber music concerts for people with hearing loss, and who usually use hearing aids or implants. Music can sound quite different through these devices and people often need some rehabilitation to start to enjoy music again.
Rediscovering Music engages participants with a small number of related instruments in a mini-concert. Listening skills are practised with the use of familiar music, enabling listeners to really appreciate the instruments and the music. The program is curated by a qualified audiologist to ensure that each concert is tailored to the specific needs of the audience and that the program delivers maximum benefits to all participants. CSO is honoured to be able to assist audiences with hearing loss connect to the music that so many of us take for granted.
