Midsummer MadNESS Concert Showcasing Musical Talents of Blind and Deaf people.
North East Sensory Services (NESS) is an amazing local charity operating with the main aim of achieving independence for Blind and Deaf people. It is the first integrated joint sensory service in Scotland and delivers much needed information, equipment and support. To raise much needed funds for this fabulous cause and to share the fantastic flair and musical prowess amongst these very gifted artists NESS will be holding a special Midsummer MadNESS concert on Saturday the 17th of August at St. Mark’s Church, Aberdeen.
The highly anticipated “Midsummer MadNESS” event will see performers take to the stage for a matinee performance in the afternoon at 2pm and an evening finale performance later that evening at 7pm. Both performances will be BSL Interpreted.
Deaf people can appreciate music through sign language, and NESS want to show you how. They also want to share with you the brilliant talent that exists within NESS – great people using the NESS vital services to help overcome the effects of serious sight and/or hearing loss. Audiences will enjoy a most uplifting and enjoyable concert experience all whilst raising money for a great cause.
The Signing Choir is made up of British Sign Language students and some members of “Singing hands “ and there is also a family of four who have had contact with NESS Youth Project. The two children will also be doing a very special duet of a signed song in the show.
