Last weekend, we went to one of our favorite Mexican restaurant, On the Border for dinner. Then we went to a musical program. It was Boise Music Week and they were celebrating their 90th years. The play was called "Singing in the Rain" and it was awesome to watch and hear. We have attended musical performance several times since we have had our CI. Hearing the music is such a blessing. There were 4 interpreters that interpreted and we can use it as a backup. We were sitting near the front stage where the orchestra pit is located. It warmed our heart and it gave us joy to listen the beautiful pieces of orchrstra. Hearing the background such as raindrops and tap of the shoes was phenomenal. We believe it was one of the best performance we have attended.
During the intermission, one of the interpreter (22 years old) came and visited with us. It turned out that she was born hearing and had lost all of her hearing from meningitis two years ago. She had learned sign language for 8 years. She has a passion for singing and want to be able to hear, especially music. She wears two Starkey tiny HAs and said it is very helpful. We told her that in the near future she should be looking at CI. She eventually will if her hearing continue to deterioate.
