HLAA 30th Anniversary Gala

Filed under: General — Paul Czech & Associates @ 3:20 pm

Mr. Czech was the organizer of the HLAA 30th Anniversary Gala that took place on May 22, 2013 at the Capital Repertory Theatre in Albany, NY.

Grammy Award Winning Composer Richard Einhorn presented information about his music and his experience as a person with a hearing loss who has enjoyed the assistance of hearing loop technology.  The event featured Musicians of Ma’alwyck performing works by Richard Einhorn.  Included was the music from “Voices of Light,” a musical accompaniment to the classic silent film “The Passion of Joan of Arc,” which was performed by Albany Pro Musica in 2011 at EMPAC, and a scene from upcoming Capital Repertory Theater’s The God Game by Suzanne Bradbeer performed by Broadway actors Yvonne Perry and Kent Burnham.  Wine, champagne, an alcohol-free alternative, and hors d’oerves were served during the reception prior to the program.  The event was supported by Gala Chairman Mayor Gerald Jennings and by sponsors, the Times Union, Yonos/dPs, Capital Repertory Theater, and CoccaDotts. 

 Hearing access technology was available during the program. A section of the theater is looped for those whose hearing aids or cochlear implants have telecoils; an FM system is in operation for those who lack compatible hearing aids; and a sign language interpreter was available upon request.

The Hearing Loss Association of America—Albany Chapter anticipates an exciting future of technological advances, improved access for people with hearing loss in public listening areas, and better understanding by the general public of hearing loss and its ramifications.
