    A Symposium on Music and the Deaf

    Deafness or hearing impairments do not preclude the experience or even the practice of music. The best-known example is Beethoven. The Mahler Chamber Orchestra has initiated the project ‘Feel the Music’, which is aimed at encouraging hearing-impaired children from all over Europe to explore the world of music with all their senses. In addition to this practical work, the Beethovenfest is setting up a symposium on ‘Music and the Deaf’.
