    Deaf Children’s Choir. The choir is made up of 26 Lebanese and Syrian refugee children aged between four and 16 years. In Lebanon, children’s choir featuring deaf Syrian refugees and locals and a 160-strong ensemble including refugee performers help to spread some seasonal cheer. With their hands signing the words and music connected to their ears through cochlear implants, a group of Lebanese and Syrian children decked out in white shirts and Santa hats heartily perform the carols they have learnt as part of Lebanon’s first-ever Christmas choir by the deaf.
