Event description

Description

Dr. Gfeller, University of Iowa, as the lead researcher on the topic of music appreciation with cochlear implant recipients, investigates musical perception and enjoyment by deafened adults who use a bionic ear to access sound. This crucial research is funded by the National Institutes of Health.

In the spirit of learning, this innovative presentation will explore the understanding of and appreciation for hearing and music perception by individuals affected with hearing loss. A lively discussion will follow on the future of music appreciation within the context of today’s technological advances.

Donations made in honor of this presentation will fund the FHSR Music to My Ears Scholarship Fund, providing one-year free access to early childhood music classes for children who are deaf/hard of hearing at The Merit School of Music and the Old Town School of Folk Music.
