Video of our NZ Sign Language Week performance goes viral!

There was magic in the air as NASDA students performed a song for New Zealand Sign Language Week in May, alongside NZSL interpreter Phoebe Leyton.

Now a video of the performance, which was organised by Ara library, has gone viral with over 27,000 views on Facebook. It’s not surprising the moving performance by the talented NASDA chorus, brought to life by Leyton’s expressive interpretation, has found wide appeal. There has been overwhelming positive feedback for the video from the Deaf community, who enjoyed watching this accessible musical recital.

We want to thank Phoebe Leyton and the NASDA students again for sharing their skill and passion with us. Check it out for yourself here in this new youtube version:
