Our choir meets each Thursday for rehearsal at 7 pm from September through May. They sing each Sunday at the 10:30 am Holy Eucharist, and at all special services throughout the church year. Our Organist and Choirmaster, Dr. Mark Andersen, is always pleased to receive inquiries about membership in the choir. Please email him by clicking this link, or write to him in care of Trinity Church.
Our youth choir performs for Youth Sunday in the spring, and other special occiasions as announced, such as Christmas and Easter.
I wanted to write and tell each of you “thank you” for the comments and notes I have received on the music during the past several months of meeting in the Parish Hall. I do so much appreciate you letting me know how much it is meaning to you to be able to have music in the services, and to have choir members dispersed among the congregation to aid in those wishing to sing. We made the decision not to have the choir members sit all in one space, but rather sit among the rest of the congregation and this has met with really good comments. Thank you for letting me know that this, is helping you all to sing.
We will being choir rehearsals once again starting in November, to prepare for our upcoming Christmas program on Sunday, December 19. The Vestry has voted that we will have a Sunday afternoon music program, with our choir and guest instrumentalists, along with singers from other churches, as we normally would do on Christmas Eve. This is due to having the programs this year in the Parish Hall, in case we cannot yet be in our sanctuary. Our Christmas Eve service will still be held, but in an effort to not overcrowd the Parish Hall, the music concert portion will be held on that Sunday afternoon, December 19. Please make your plans to be with us, as we prepare a meaningful Christmas Music Program.
P.S. In October 2019 I had the honor of performing with Margaret Pate, David Eaton, Joshua Sobel, and Lynn Andersen at the new Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral in Raleigh on their new CB Fisk pipe organ. It is one of the finest organs in our state, and the acoustics of the Cathedral are magnificent. As Dean of the Central North Carolina American Guild of Organists, I was asked to put together this opening concert. For those who have asked about recordings, the entire concert can now be heard online divided in two television shows that are being televised across the Nation from New York and Seattle.
Here are the two links to the You-tube recordings of both shows:
