Music plays a significant role in the worship life of Trinity Presbyterian Church.
Our music ministry is exciting and diverse: honoring sacred music traditions of the past while open to new expressions of praise inspired by the Spirit today. It is our hope and deepest desire that every note of music proclaims the truth, love, and justice of Jesus Christ and empowers us to live faithfully as his disciples.
Instrumentalists and singers of all ages and abilities are welcome to share their talents with us throughout the year! Whether you feel comfortable playing a solo, accompanying a choir or just playing along with a hymn or two, you can make a special contribution to our worship services. Soloists, small ensembles, chamber groups, and various bands are invited to talk with the music ministers and lend your own style to our worship life.
The Trinity Choir welcomes adults to sing on Sundays from August through mid-June and for special services on Christmas Eve and throughout Holy Week. We also perform significant works of choral music on occasion, either in concert or in a special worship presentation. Our repertoire is varied, including well-known cantatas and oratorios, English choral music, African-American spirituals, Early American hymns, contemporary songs and anthems, and more.
The Festival Choir welcomes everyone who loves to sing, whether you read music or learn by ear. This special ensemble sings at worship celebrations throughout the year, and is a great place to offer your musical gifts if you are unable to commit to ongoing weekly rehearsals. Our musical selections are fun and diverse, including gospel and blues, spirituals and folk songs, as well as music from around the globe.
The Handbell Choir invites adults and teenagers to ring with this unique-sounding ensemble. We perform hymn arrangements, original compositions, and are exploring new ways of using the bells in our worship services: incorporating them into processionals, ringing hymn descants, and accompanying responsorial Psalm settings.
Through the Psalm 150 Fund, you have an opportunity to make a musical offering of your own. This important fund provides for guest musicians on special occasions and also provides financial support for other creative and meaningful musical endeavors throughout the year. We encourage you to give generously and joyfully to this special offering.
We are pleased to offer musical opportunities for individuals of all ages and abilities and we extend a warm welcome to anyone who would like to join us!
