Wow, what a weekend!
Handy Voices was part of the sign singing competition at the Jersey Eisteddfod.
So proud of everyone and so happy about the time that we had together.
The adventure started even before we got there with with late and/or cancelled flights.
As a team, we rehearsed on the beach in the sunshine, performed on stage in the gorgeous Jersey Opera House with work that we can be proud of and laughed hard celebrating our time together.
We presented the songs translated into BSL in a visual, funny, sweet, moving way.
The judges preferred songs that were direct translations — lyrics to sign with no or little interpretation or variation.
The certificate colours we were awarded do not match our passion, drive, or quality of performance however here is what we were awarded with: Alex and Jo received Silver Awards for their solos. Jen and Pete received Bronze for their duet, Rand received Bronze for his solo and Christine received Copper for my solo.
Thank you team for an amazing weekend and for your hard work. See you at our next session.
A massive thank you also to Vision Signing Choir (Karen and Emma) and Significant (Stef) for being great competitors and looking forward to seeing you again in the near future.
