Holy Trinity Church has a proud tradition of making fine music for the past 100 years; music that serves as an offering of praise and thanksgiving to God. Our parish music ministry serves to inspire and uplift, providing a program as diverse as its people. At Holy Trinity, music for worship spans the entire treasury of the Church's repertoire, from Gregorian Chant and Renaissance motets to the most contemporary literature. Musical leadership at all Masses is provided by the volunteer choirs and cantors. Singing or playing in one of the choirs gives us the opportunity to enhance worship at our parish, to nourish community among choir members and with fellow parishioners, and to experience the opening of heart and spirit that is found in musical prayer.
This ministry is continually seeking new members. If you play an instrument or have a pleasant singing voice, please consider one of our many music-making opportunities. Holy Trinity is fortunate to have choirs of differing styles whose primary purpose is to lead and enhance the music at all liturgies.
If you are interested in joining our ministry, please contact the Director of Music, Jay Terpstra in the office of Music Ministry for more information. You can reach him at 214.526.8555 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Holy Trinity Sanctuary Choir sings weekly at the Sunday, 11:00 am mass. Rehearsals are each Wednesday from 7-9 beginning in August for the fall season. The sanctuary choir sings a variety of styles from classical to contemporary. We present a choral rosary twice a year, in October and May, and perform a major work every November at our annual Memorial Concert. At Christmas, in addition to the regular liturgies, we have added a tradition of Lessons and Carols which is always followed by an informal celebration with Christmas songs and fun for the kids. Our year concludes in the late spring with our Pops Concert that gives us a chance to showcase the individual talents of choir members. With fundraisers through the year, our post-Christmas dinner, the spring banquet, and summer pool parties, we are a busy and fun-loving group.
The Schola Cantorum sings once a month at the 5:00 p.m. Saturday mass with rehearsals at 4:00 p.m. on the same Saturday.
