The Music Man April 21st at the Hale Centre Theatre

HLAA-SLC and Loop Utah are joining together for a special event in April. Instead of HLAA-SLC’s regular meeting on April 21st, we will meet at the new Hale Centre Theatre (HCT) in Sandy at 11 AM in the Hospitality room for a pre-show reception. The show starts at 12:30 PM.

Loop Utah Music Man

HCT has looped both of their theatres entirely which is a real treat for those who wear cochlear implants or hearing aids. If you wear either one, make sure your telecoil program is turned on before going to the event. Hearing loops send up a magnet signal to the telecoil (also called a t-coil) which is in 80% of hearing aids and all cochlear implants. That means there’s no devices to pick up and return, it’s as easy as pushing a button on the hearing aid for fantastic sound quality. Listening through the t-coil is like having personalized speakers because each device is programmed specifically to the individual’s hearing loss. It takes away the distance gap hearing aids alone cannot deal with (hearing aids are only good in a 4-6 foot range when used alone). Many users say they hear better through a hearing loop than any other assistive listening system.

Tickets are $30 each, please RSVP by March 17th to  Tickets must be paid in advance to HLAA-SLC, also by March 17th You can stop by the Sanderson Center and drop off cash or checks to Chelle, the HLAA-SLC treasurer.  Please make checks payable to HLAA-SLC.

*Season tickets holders may book/exchange tickets for this performance bu contacting the HCT box office at 801-984-9000.

Be sure to read the comments and add one of your own to let people know that hearing loss accommodations are needed.  The more we keep hearing loss in the news the better we reach out to others, hearing and hard of hearing.
