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.
My goal is to involve as many people as possible of any 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. 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 will resonate with you and is relevant for you.
We presently have 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 our band of musicians, you are encouraged to join us any Sunday morning at 9:00 when we meet to rehearse for the 10:00 service. I am also interested in expanding music offerings for the youth of our community, and welcome inquiries from parents with children who have musical interests.
Being a part of the music ministry and community of Trinity is a source of joy in my life. I have found that Rev. Tricia and other staff members embody the message of inclusive, non-judgmental love of God that is spoken on Sunday mornings, a trait that is echoed by parishioners. For this reason, in addition to so many others, I love Trinity!
In addition to music, I also enjoy all the activities associated with being a hobby farmer, cuddling with goats among them, as well as delightful daily hikes with my husband and our two puppydogs on the beautiful, wooded trails of Connecticut.
