The primary music ensemble at Trinity is the congregation, gathered and singing together, in worship.
The Trinity Choir assists in leading worship nearly every Sunday from Labor Day through May, as well as other special services. The choir also collaborates once or twice each season with other choirs to present choral concerts/services. The music ranges from chant and early Renaissance to music written by living composers. The Choir is open to all ages high school age and older.
Rehearsals: Wednesday, 7:15–9 pm; and Sunday warm-up, 9:15–9:50 am
The Trinity Handbells rehearse from September through Trinity Sunday, and ring in worship once per month, as well as for special services. Trinity Handbells offer musical solos as well as enhance congregational song in worship. Open to anyone high school age and older; no experience required, though some music-reading skill is helpful.
Instruments play an important role in Trinity’s music program. Anyone who plays a band or orchestra instrument is welcome to form informal groups or play as soloists during services. Instrumentalists commonly participate in Taizé-style songs on Sundays and occasionally help lead other music.

Trinity’s Hendrickson Pipe Organ
Trinity inaugurated its new Hendrickson pipe organ in February 2011 after years of preparation and fundraising. Built by Hendrickson Organ Company of St. Peter, the mahogany pipes were made in Europe, and the case is of locally sourced oak from trees cut down to build Highway 212.
