When in our music God is glorified, and adoration leaves no room for pride, it is as though the whole creation cried: Alleluia!
Let every instrument be tuned for praise;
let all rejoice who have a voice to raise;
and may God give us faith to sing always: Alleluia!
– When In Our Music God Is Glorified, ELW 851, verses 1 & 5; Text: Fred Pratt Green.
We lift our voices in prayer and praise! Congregational singing is an important element of our music ministry at Holy Trinity. Supporting and enhancing the congregation are a variety of musical groups.
We encourage and appreciate musical initiative at Holy Trinity. Several vocal ensembles sing on occasion: The Fab Five (men's barbershop quintet), Unaccompanied Women (women's barbershop quartet), and Adoramus (a capella mixed quartet). There's always room for more.
Holy Trinity Chancel Choir
The Chancel Choir sings weekly at the 11:00am Sunday worship service, except for the month of July, and provides anthems for most special evening services. Rehearsals are held on Wednesday evenings at 7:30pm at the church.
New voices are always welcome! Although the ability to read music is helpful, it is not essential. If you can carry a tune and enjoy singing, give us a try! Singers new to choral singing are invited to join the choir for rehearsals for several weeks before participating in the Sunday anthem.
Trinity Children's Choir
The children's choir, led and conducted by Shannon Thomas, is open to children in kindergarten through 5th grade and performs at both Sunday worship services approximately once a month. The choir meets for a 15-minute practice session most Sundays at 9:30am.
The SonRise Players provide musical accompaniment for Holy Trinity's 8:15am Sunday semi-contemporary service. Rehearsals are held on Sunday mornings at 7:45am.
This group of talented and enthusiastic volunteer musicians includes a pianist, flutists, guitarists, strings and percussionists. The SonRise Players welcome additional musicians of any skill level – even those who can only play once or twice a month.
Holy Trinity's handbell choir, founded by Mrs. Becky Leager in the early 1980s, provides special music during both Sunday services several times a year. Rehearsals are held on Sunday evenings at 5:00 p.m. The group is open to anyone who reads music.
The Trinity Trio, a new configuration of the former Trinity Strings, is composed of violinists Merrilee Jacobson and Matt Stallmann and flutist Laura Snoddy. They perform every four to six weeks at both services. The group rehearses at mutually convenient times once a month.
Additional string players or flutists are always welcome. The name of the ensemble can be adjusted as needed!
