MUSIC AT TRINITY

Adult Choir:
Rehearses from 7:30 p.m.-9:00 p.m. Wednesday evenings September through May.

Children’s Choir:
(grades 1-5) Gathers for a music program on Sunday afternoons from 5:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m. September through May.

Music in worship is affirmed by theologian Karl Barth in these words:

The Christian community sings. It is not a choral society. Its singing is not a concert. But from inner, material necessity it sings. Singing is the highest form of human expression. It is to such supreme expression that the vox humana [human voice] is devoted in the ministry of the Christian community.

To this end, music has always played a vital role in worship at Trinity. The congregation, of course, is the primary choir, offering its praise and prayer to God through hymns and responses each week in the Service for the Lord’s Day. Minister of Music Jane Arant, directs the choir programs and is the organist.

The Trinity Choir, in addition to supporting the congregation’s singing, offers anthems and solos that serve as prayer, praise and proclamation. Members of the choir bring a wide range of expertise and experience, and their devotion to the music they learn together and their mutual regard in fellowship give great value to each person’s contribution. Adults and students in 9th grade or higher are invited to join the choir, which rehearses on Wednesday evenings from 7:30 p.m.-9:00 p.m., September-May, and sings weekly except for the Sundays of July and August.

Children (grades 1- 5) gather for a music program on Sunday afternoons from 5:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m. A graded program enables them to develop musical skills in a context of fun and fellowship, while also preparing anthems to sing in worship four times a year. These boys and girls also prepare a musical drama to perform at the Advent Family Night Dinner each December. The children often accompany their singing on Orff instruments and handchimes.

Other instruments that support the music program are the
1965 Moeller pipe organ, an 1887 Steinway piano, and a VanBergen carillon installed in 2001. In addition, youth from the congregation, as well as players from the Charlotte Symphony, play other instruments for special occasions.
