Trinity Choir & Music Ministry

Unfortunately the choir was not able to assemble during the past year although hopefully as this pandemic becomes less of a danger we will be able to once again sing as an ensemble in the future.

 

Trinity’s faithful adult choir, a small ensemble of volunteer singers holding high the Episcopal tradition of musical excellence, performs classic anthems, a capella singing, contemporary compositions, a broad repertoire of service music, and pieces for solo and duet singers.

 

The choir welcomes any person who would like to join in the pleasure of its joyful service work.

The benefits of singing in a choir include:

  • Sing the world’s greatest music from across the globe.

  • Learn to play an important role in the leadership of the liturgy.

  • Learn to read music.

  • Make new friends and be a part of a team that works and plays hard.

  • Internalize biblical and poetic texts that reinforce Christian faith.

  • Joyfully serve through church through music and song

 

Trinity Church is blessed to have a beautiful grand piano and Paragallo/Baldwin organ within an acoustically excellent space. Its elevated, oak presentation floor is frequent host to many instrumentalist playing for both worship services and arts programs. In the recent past there have been trumpet, French horn, clarinet, saxophone, bell, flute, violin, viola, cello, and bass performances for Holy Days, festival days, Sunday worship services, and concerts -- all adding to Trinity’s commitment to music as an important part of its community life.

It is not every day that a world class musical ensemble selects to play a piece composed by one of our friends, but of course, this is not any Joe!
