Hearing and Aging Lab at Kent State University

Submitted by JoAnne Turner.

The Hearing and Aging Lab at Kent State University is again looking for participants for a research study conducted by Dr. Bruna Mussoi and assistant Riley Burke.  It sounds like the same study I participated in last spring.  It involves hearing tests, brief cognitive screening test, listening to tones, repeating words and sentences in quiet and noisy backgrounds and completing a series of tasks to help understand your listening skills, thinking skills and language abilities.  Participation involves 2-3 visits to the lab, lasting 2-3 hours.  Compensation will be provided ($10 per hour) and a parking pass may also be provided. If interested, contact Kent State Hearing and Aging Lab   330-672-2391 

Inspiration for the Strings

Submitted by Cindy Ebner

I had an idea today to help myself get into the music more and see it with the dance or movie it is in to get a better feel for it.    I thought maybe we could put the following on the website and let people know they are there for inspiration and ideas.

Last thing is for you regarding playing in synchronous movements that I thought you might like.

Ella Fitzgerald – It don’t mean a thing

Submitted by Abyemabi

Good morning, I want to share this with you, I came across this on a site called “Trombone Place”. The tempo is seriously fast and impressive, Miss Ella is incredible, I heard when she scats it’s because she forgot the words, true or not, it fits the songs she sings, she is a songstress to the highest magnitude.

Have a wonderful day. Abyemabi

Summer Picnic July 29, 2023

Thank you to all of the board members and members who had a hand in organizing, setting up, grilling and cleaning up during the picnic. It takes lots of thought and planning to put on a special event like the one we had today! The performances were a delight, food was excellent and I got to meet some new people. Thanks again for a delightful afternoon. I had a blast! — Submitted by Debbie Withnell (Percussion)
