Hands 4 Voices is a new and exciting signing choir based in Hockley/Rochford, Essex.
Currently with 50 members over 2 sessions, we meet on a weekly basis to practise signing to songs from many different genres.
Members are mixed - some Deaf, some Partially Deaf and some Hearing. Anyone aged 16 and over is welcome to join regardless of signing experience (under 16's considered dependant on circumstances).
All we ask you to have is enthusiasm and passion (and the willingness to work hard!!)
What do we sign and how do we do it?
We sign to a range of songs - anything from One Direction to The Beatles to Nickelback! The song is played and the choir members use their "hands 4 voices" to sign the lyrics. As with any sign language, expression and body language are imperative to relay the emotion of all the songs.
Don't know how to sign?
Don't let that worry you! Whilst we have experienced signers in the choir, some joined us with no previous experience at all.
With the support of everyone involved in the choir, you'll feel right at home in Hands 4 Voices straight away - and part of a very unique and special group.
