Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. It’s a holiday some people embrace and some avoid. This year, single or attached, make it your business to use February 14th to celebrate Love.

Living with hearing loss often offers an extra excuse to skip the lovefest and hunker down alone.

It’s well known that hearing loss, particularly untreated and undiagnosed, can lead to isolating behaviors. Valentine’s Day can be a great moment to reconnect with loved ones. It could be a night to sweep your honey off their feet. Or, if you’re not half of a couple, wrangle up a few close friends to paint the town red.

In the mood

Use it as an amuse bouche for the big day or the main event of your Valentine’s week. Spend a perfect Saturday evening revisiting the Swing Era! Richard Prior conducts as the Gary Motley Trio performs alongside the Emory Big Band and the Emory University Symphony Orchestra Strings. While this event is ticketed, the concert is free to attend.
