Lisa and Duane Hawk met in September of 1981 at a college that teaches blind students the art of piano tuning and repair. Duane was in the second year of a two-year course, and Lisa was in her first year. Duane came back to his home town of Palmerton, PA to start a piano tuning and repair business and the couple married in September of 1983.
Music has always been an important part of life for both Lisa and Duane. As they got to know each other in college, they discovered that both liked to play and sing country and gospel music. That love of music continued after marriage. The Hawks started taking small entertaining jobs to supplement their income. The number of jobs they took grew quickly.
Lisa plays the piano and Duane plays the guitar. Both of them sing.
VSA Arts of Loudoun County’s mission is to provide creative opportunities to people with disabilities in an inclusive community, through the performing and visual Arts.
Admission is a suggested $20 donation and can be reserved by calling 540-338-7973.
