Imagine being in New Orleans for the ASHA convention and listening to some of the finest jazz around—played by an ASHA member! Well-known audiologist Chuck Berlin will perform with other fine musicians at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation’s JazzFest at the 2009 convention.
JazzFest will take place on Thurs., Nov. 19, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Howlin’ Wolf, one of the Big Easy’s premier music clubs. Sure to be a sell-out, this true New Orleans-style evening will feature Berlin and other local all-star musicians. Join the parade from the convention opening session to this evening of great music, good fun, and networking, just a block from the Convention Center.
Chuck Berlin delved into jazz at age 7 and first performed for clients of his father—a speech-language pathologist—as they waited for treatment appointments in his father’s home office. At age 19 he contracted polio in his hand and arm and, unable to pursue music performance, earned doctorates in speech-language pathology and audiology. Eventually, he regained use of his hand and returned to his first love, piano jazz. He is one of many ASHA members who are also accomplished musicians. (For a sample of Berlin’s music, go to the ASHFoundation Web site.
Berlin’s commitment to communication sciences and disorders and his passion for jazz are coming together to benefit ASHFoundation research and scholarship efforts at this unique fundraising event.
Admission to JazzFest is $100 for the first ticket, and $50 each for up to two additional guests. More than 200 tickets have already been sold—act now to ensure your seat. Tickets can be purchased on the Convention registration form or by calling 301-694-5243.
