The Chancel Choir, which rehearses Thursday evenings 7:30 - 9:00 pm and Sunday mornings from 9:45 - 10:15 am, leads the 10:30 am service, September through Pentecost. The Chancel Choir also sings during the Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday and Maundy Thursday services. There are opportunities for singers and instrumentalists to lead the music at the 8:30 am service throughout the year and at the 10:30 am service in the summertime. The Chancel Choir sings an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary music from Renaissance motets through Gospel anthems and spirituals.
Additionally, the choir provides special musical services and concerts, often with professional instrumentalists. If you are unable to attend regular Chancel Choir rehearsals, we’d love to have you join us for these special celebrations. Practices for these events are held from 11:45 am to 12:30 pm on Sundays for four to six weeks immediately before these services. Please contact the Director of Music Ministries at any time about your interest in becoming involved with Trinity’s music program. Contact Dr. Julia Davids for more information.
Lightshine Children's Choir
Lightshine Children's Choir (LCC) invites children to develop singing, musicianship and literacy skills through games, movement, play and dance. Children ages 4 (by Sept. 1) through 2nd grade meet on Tuesdays from 4:15 - 4:45 pm followed by a shared snack and an occasional craft to build friendships, finishing by 5:00 pm. 3rd grade and older meet from 5:00 - 5:45 pm preceded by a shared snack with the younger children. LCC sings in 10:30 worship about once a month and on Christmas Eve. Adult help is needed to assist with snack time, art projects and robes on Sundays when children sing. Chimes will soon make their debut for the older children to use in LCC. Please contact Elizabeth Weismehl for more information.
Trinity Ringers Handbell Choir
This handbell ensemble rehearses from 6:00-7:15 pm on Thursdays from September through May. The ensemble plays four to five times a year in worship throughout the year, playing five octaves of Schulmerich handbells. Most of the members have only a few years of experience ringing handbells, some are beginners, and others have a more extensive background. Minimal music reading is essential, but a good sense of rhythm is even more helpful! Contact Andrea Handley or call (847) 863-3823.
