Highlanders ‘Sing to the World’ at Adventist Sites
Story by Andrew S. Lay
As the Seventh-day Adventist Church recognized the 175th anniversary of the Great Disappointment last year, the Highlanders traveling choir embarked on a trip to the Adventist heritage site of the William Miller farm in Low Hampton, N.Y. There they created videos for their Sing to the World project, which aims to connect both current Adventist youth and older church members with the events that took place in 1844.
David Niño, Highland View Academy’s music director, says, “It was very meaningful for both the students and director to film this project at the very same site where our pioneers expected the second coming of Christ.”
They recorded at both the William Miller farm and nearby Ascension Rock to film three videos connecting the music to these historic Adventist events. Niño adds, “Adventist Heritage Ministries helped our group in marvelous ways, from reserving the project site to providing food and accommodations for our group at the Kingsbury church in Hudson Falls, N.Y.”
