The Music Ministry Team at Trinity Lutheran Church is made up of a dedicated staff and volunteers who strive to enhance the worship experience through the joy of music. Our organist, accompanists, cantors, and vocal and instrumental soloists and ensembles provide special music and support congregational singing in a wide variety of styles appropriate to each worship service.
Calling All Singers!!
The Holidays are just around the corner, and it is time to think about all the wonderful music that happens at Trinity during this time. For those of you who have never been a part of Trinity's Festival Choir, I encourage you to make this your year to participate!!
You can choose to be a part of any or all of the events. I have tried to make the rehearsal schedule clear, and with many options for your schedule. The Music Family is so special here at Trinity - I encourage you to enhance your Holiday Season by joining us!

Chancel Bells rehearses from 6:30- 7:20 p.m. on Thursday evenings. Music reading and prior handbell experience is helpful, but not necessary. The Bells participate in worship about once a month.
Sanctuary Choir rehearses from 7:30-8:30 p.m. on Thursday evenings. We participate in the 8:30 a.m. Heritage worship service about three Sundays a month singing a variety of music from more traditional choral literature. Music reading and prior singing experience are not necessary!
Celebration Singers rehearse at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday mornings. This group leads the congregation in praise songs at the 11:00 a.m. worship service every week and also prepares contemporary anthems.
Praise Band warms-up at 10:00 a.m. for the 11:00 a.m. Celebration Service. All instrumentalists are welcome: Youth and Adults, brass, winds, strings and percussion!
The Festival Choir combines singers from both the Sanctuary Choir and Celebration Singers, as well as additional members of the congregation who enjoy singing with the choir on special occasions but cannot commit to weekly rehearsals throughout the year. This group prepares a small major work with chamber orchestra, and is often a highlight for both the singers and the congregation. Past offerings include: Mozart’s “Missa Brevis in d minor,” Vivaldi’s “Gloria,” as well as seasonal Cantatas for Advent and Holy Week.
Sunday School Children and Families participate in a Music Opening before heading to their individual Sunday School classes. The Children share their music in worship several times during the year.
