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 take a moment to let each of you know how very much I appreciate all of the nice notes, emails, and calls we’ve received regarding the video services during this time we cannot meet together in person. It has been a prayerful process putting together the services and finding the music befitting Fr. Gene’s wonderful insights each week. It continues to be a blessing to work with Fr. Gene and Lynn, two superheroes, during this time.
I’ve been spending a lot of this “home” time writing new anthems for our choir, new pieces for organ, and new solos for us to use in the upcoming time when we will all be together again.
I’m thankful that the powers that be are taking careful time to evaluate the best and safest way for us to move forward. And, as one of the many who have pre-existing health problems, I’m most appreciative that our medical interests are being considered as we move forward.
I miss our choir, our handbells, and each one of you, my church family.
P.S. A few months ago I had the honor of performing with Lynn Andersen, Margaret Pate, David Eaton, and Joshua Sobel 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:
