Even though I am a legalist when it comes to listening to Christmas music ONLY AFTER THANKSGIVING, I am already planning for one evening of music well into December.
The Behold the Lamb of God tour is returning to Mecklenburg Community Church on Wednesday, December 12. You can check out my posts about last year’s concert here. I HIGHLY recommend this concert! The first half is a sampling of music — usually two songs each — from all the artists who are on tour together. After intermission, the artists return to the stage to play through Andrew Peterson’s 45-minute trip through redemption history, culminating in the birth of Christ.
This year Derek and Sandra will still be touring, so they will not be a part of this tour. (say it with me, “awwww…”) But the featured artists will include Sara Groves, Bebo Norman, Andrew Osenga, Andy Gullahorn and Jill Phillips. The band usually includes Garrett Buell (the percussion genius who’s part of Caedmon’s), Ben Shive (the musical genius who arranges and produces all of Andrew Peterson’s albums, as well as many others’), and Gabe Scott (the hammer dulcimer and obscure-instrument genius who often tours with Andrew Peterson).
SO, anyway, enough chatting. Tickets SOLD OUT last year. They are $10 general admission. We may be able to get a group rate if we get more than ten people together to go. If you are interested in joining us, please leave me a comment or send me an email. I’d like to get a bunch of tickets ordered by Thanksgiving, if it’s possible.
Parents, we brought our two oldest kids to this last year and they really enjoyed it. They will probably like it even more this year since we have the CD and they are familiar with the music now. If you would like to introduce the music to your children, you can find a player on this page, which will play all the music for you…or just order the CD!
And yes, this is one CD I’ll probably break out before Christmas. It’s for the kids. 😉
