Music Ministry

One of the goals of the Music Ministry at Trinity is to involve as many people as possible of every age who want to express themselves musically in worship, in a way that is personally meaningful and satisfying. For some, this may be through traditional hymn and choral singing with accompaniment on our well-maintained Austin pipe organ, or perhaps with folk arrangements using acoustic instruments. For others, modern praise music with electric guitars, percussion, and synthesizer is preferred, or even secular music with messages that edify and uplift, and that resonate with a broader range of age groups. And some may enjoy non-traditional instrumental ensembles with music drawn from many different cultures and genres. At Trinity, you will find all these musical styles represented, and you are encouraged to share your ideas to help shape a worship experience that is relevant for you. 

 

We presently have an adult choir and a youth choir at Trinity:

 

The Altar Egos is a versatile core of instrumentalists and singers of diverse ages that gracefully transition between acoustic music and electrified music with percussion during each service. If you are interested in adding your talents to The Altar Egos, our band of fun-loving musicians, you are encouraged to join us any Sunday morning at 9:00 when we meet to rehearse for the 10:00 service, and again after the service to rehearse for the following week. The Altar Egos sing from September to mid-June.

 

Jammin' For Jesus is our youth choir, a talented and energetic ensemble of kids of various ages that sing regularly during our 10:00 worship service. Rehearsals take place on Tuesdays from 5:00 - 6:00 and follow the school year.

I joined Trinity as the Music Director in January of 2020. My background is in music education, music ministry, and music performance, and I have been active in those professions for over twenty years.

 

Being a part of the music ministry and community of Trinity is a source of joy in my life. I love working and collaborating with my colleagues. The parishioners exhibit an easy-going and genuine warmth that makes one feel immediately comfortable and welcome. And rehearsing with the musicians of Trinity is always a highlight of my week, guaranteed to provide big smiles and joyful laughter. For these reasons, and so many others, I love Trinity!

 

In addition to music, I also enjoy gardening, being a hobby farmer, and hiking with my husband and our two puppydogs on the beautiful, wooded trails of Connecticut.

Music Club & Choir

Trinity has a youth choir that goes by the name Jammin’ For Jesus! The Jammin’ For Jesus bunch meets on Tuesday afternoons from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. in the music room for music games, lessons, activities, singing, and snacks. They regularly sing in our worship services by themselves and with the adult choir. 

Weekly “jam sessions” follow the school year schedule.

Children aged 4 and up are welcome. 

Come join us!
