Spend a wonderful evening exploring the relationship between music and the science of listening. All ages will be delighted by performers spanning jazz, classical, and percussion – from Bartok to Beethoven to Bjork. The Balboa Theatre will be filled with sounds of music, along with a multimedia presentation from three renowned hearing specialists: Dr. Kevin Franck who heads Harvard’s Massachusetts Eye and Ear Department of Audiology, Neuroscientist Nina Kraus of BrainVolts at Northwestern University and Audiologist Michael Santucci who runs Sensphonics Hearing Wellness. These compelling demonstrations will show how sound gets from the artist into the listener’s ear to inspire.
