The Heimermann Children's Choir, accompanied by members of the Nashville Symphony Orchestra, put on a moving performance Sunday evening at Zion Christian Academy. The Choir's co-founder Charles Heimermann not only directed the performance entitled "Behold the Lamb of God," but he also wrote many of the songs, as well as composed the music, several with co-founder J.D. Wise.
The performance was comprised of 10 songs, beginning with Heimermann's powerful original "Worthy Is the Lamb," based on John the Baptist's pronouncement to a group of priests and Levites when he saw Jesus Christ approaching him at the Jordan River: "Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!"
A crowd favorite was the classic hymn "I Am Thine O Lord," written by Fanny Crosby, which was flawlessly executed by vocalists Tom Long, Tenor I; Aaron Velthouse, Tenor II; Bill Hodge, Baritone; and Gary Robinson, Bass.
For the grand finale, Zion Christian Academy students joined the choir and chorale in performing the program's namesake song "Behold the Lamb of God," also written by Heimermann. The performance is captured on video below.
The Heimermann Choir will be performing many additional events this year, as well as recording a Christmas album. The Choir is currently inviting children of Maury County to audition. This exceptional musical training program gives boys and girls, aged 8 to 16, an opportunity to learn to read music and learn music theory in a positive, classical environment.
