Trinity Choir

The Trinity Choir shares a unique mix of repertoire, from classical composers, to spirituals, gospel, contemporary and multicultural works.  Our choir includes singers of all ages and experience levels who love to rejoice, laugh together and support one another.  In addition to our weekly anthems, we prepare special concerts and offerings. Previous projects include Vivaldi’s Gloria and Mozart’s Coronation Mass accompanied by a chamber orchestra, an Ice Cream Social concert of oldies tunes, and a trip to New York City where we performed with choirs from across the country at Avery Fisher Hall. Weekly rehearsals are Wednesdays from 7:30- 9 pm in the sanctuary, from September through May.

Bell Choir

We have a strong hand bell tradition at Trinity and our ringers play music in a variety of styles and prepare musical offerings for Sunday services and special community programs during the year.  Playing in a hand bell choir requires great teamwork and a good sense of humor, and our ensemble is open to experienced ringers and those trying it for the first time. The Bell Choir rehearses Wednesdays from 6:15-7:15 pm in the sanctuary from September through May.

Trinity Youth

The Trinity Youth are an important part of our Music Ministry! Youth of all ages from our Sunday School and the community participate in music offerings, particularly on Youth Sundays (second Sunday of the month).

Trinity  offers a  children’s choir program (Joyful Noise!), open to youth in the community ages 4-9. Children  learn to find their singing voice and will prepare for a community performance in November with the Trinity choir. Rehearsals are Wednesday afternoon. Contact our Director of Music, Dr. Ondine Young, for more information.
