The Heimermann Children’s Choir gives its participants the opportunity to bring their voices together in a social environment. The choir, now enrolling for the 2015-16 school year, was organized in August 2014. The first concerts consisted of singing with the Nashville Choir, directed by John Coates, and at the Ryman Auditorium for the Tokens Thanksgiving radio show, produced by Lee Camp.
The Heimermann Children’s Choir is directed by homeschool dad Charles Heimermann, who is also the director of music ministries for Pennington United Methodist Church in Nashville. He has also served with the Nashville Choir, the Nashville Symphony Chorus and the Chamber Chorus and sung as bass soloist in several performances with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra. Heimermann is a member of the Nashville Composer’s Collective, which presents quarterly concerts featuring works by local composers. He has also done narration and voiceover work for clients including the Nashville Symphony, Vanderbilt University and Digital Hero Games.
