What does a classical musician do when she starts losing her hearing?

Elizabeth Petcu was at the height of her career when she realised she was slowly losing her hearing, and would soon need to leave her position as principal flautist in Ireland’s prestigious RTÉ Concert Orchestra. Rather than give up on music, though, Elizabeth has continued to play, observing that a ‘big part of hearing loss is your perception of your loss’. While she isn’t free from feeling deep sorrow at times, her gentle yet firm commitment to continue to create clearly carries her through the challenges of losing her hearing.

Director: Hilary Fennell

Producer: Martha O’Neill
