The "Signs" of Christmas 

Christmas Concert

Looking for an extraordinary Christmas concert to get you in the mood for the holidays?  Look no further!  Come and join us for a fantastic Christmas show in American Sign Language!  Selections include a blend of traditional carols, religious songs, fun melodies, and solo performances.

“Signs” of Christmas is a non-profit organization of committed volunteers who come together each year to spread Christmas cheer and promote Deaf/Hard of Hearing awareness through the beauty of American Sign Language.  The group performs at a variety of venues in Central Ohio – including, for the first time, the Martin de Porres Center.  The program was started in 1980 by Pastor Donald Leber of the Holy Cross Lutheran Church of the Deaf and continues his vision today.

View/print a PDF of the program flyer for further information.

$10.00 suggested donation. Please register by December 10.
