Welcome to the Bringing the Stage to Life - NASHVILLE Conference! This event is completely unique and cannot be compared to any short or long term performance interpreting conference. BSL Nashville focuses on preparing attendees to use performance interpreting skills for professional and local events. Because BSL Nashville is located here in Music City U.S.A. we have a unique opportunity to access a wide variety of musical styles and settings ranging from dinner theaters, to national shows, to local Honky Tonks, one time big named concerts, to the famous Grand Ole Opry stage. This event will prepare interpreters to provide top quality, visually stimulating, musical interpretations, the kind which most Deaf consumers crave.

This conference will earn you 3.5 PS CEUs.

The 21st Annual Summer Institute for Educational Interpreters will be held June 10 - 13, 2013 at the Tennessee School for the Deaf in Knoxville. This training is sponsored by the State Department of Education and the Tennessee School for the Deaf. The Institute is open to all interpreters. Participants will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis, with priority given to those educational interpreters currently working in Tennessee’s schools. Teachers of the deaf/hard-of-hearing who occasionally serve as interpreters would also be given priority. This training is designed to enhance interpreting skills in the educational setting, so it would not be appropriate for those persons who are beginning to learn sign language. Participants should have good sign language skills. School systems are encouraged to grant in-service credit to individuals who successfully complete the requirements of the Institute. The Institute covers 24 hours of instructional time. The registration fee is $55. This fee covers the cost of daily refreshments, continental breakfasts, Institute training materials, and a tote bag for each participant.
