Mr. Henry is always looking for new ways to engage his choir students and open their minds to new experiences. This year, he challenged them to learn the sign language to Let There Be Peace On Earth, a song they will sing and sign for a virtual Christmas Card for families and the community.
With the help of Allison Buroker, who is currently studying sing language, they are using “Sign Exact Language” which incorporates a sign for every spoken word. Allison has done a great job virtually instructing our students and explaining the the meaning behind the signs. She also explains how sign language has to follow the mood and speed of the song.
The students are really excited about this project and look forward to bringing this to a future show and sharing with our community!
