Worship at Holy Trinity is deeply rooted in the rich musical heritage of the Lutheran church. Congregational singing, pipe organ and piano music, anthems offered by our choirs, and solo voice or instrumental music are all a regular part of our worship life together.
Music & Fine Arts
"My heart, which is so full to overflowing, has often been solaced and refreshed by music when sick and weary."
― Martin Luther
Committee on Worship and Fine Arts
Through beauty, we experience the divine. The fine arts, including music, visual art, liturgical decorations, and the performing arts, are important at Holy Trinity. Our Committee on Worship and Fine Arts provides support to and consults with the pastor and music staff regarding the conduct of weekly and special worship services in accordance with the practices of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and in a manner that draws upon the resources of the ecumenical community of faith; provides for the availability of worship and devotional resources; coordinates fine arts events; and provides for the purchase of worship supplies, vestments, banners, and art work.
Gloria Ringers Handbell Ensemble
The Gloria Ringers rehearse on Wednesdays from 6:00-7:30 p.m. from September through May. The group rings for Sunday services a handful of times throughout the school year and participates in off-site events to share handbell music with our community. The Gloria Ringers play on a unique set of Whitechapel handbells and a set of hand chimes. No prior handbell experience is required to participate, but familiarity with reading sheet music is encouraged. The group’s collaborative and encouraging rehearsal style supports ringers with varying levels of handbell experience. Contact Logan Olson at email@example.com.
Holy Trinity Music Ensembles
Gloria Ringers Handbell Ensemble
All are welcome in our music programs! If you’re interested in sharing your gifts in one of our ensembles, or by offering special music during a church service, please contact Cantor Phil Radtke at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Adult Choir sings almost every Sunday from September–May at the 11:00 a.m. service, and rehearses in the choir room on Wednesdays from 7:30-9:00 p.m. We sing a wide variety of choral literature, psalm antiphons, liturgical music, and hymn settings. Everyone is welcome to join! We’re currently on hiatus during the pandemic, saving up our stories, recipes, fellowship, and voices until we can be together safely again. Contact Cantor Phil Radtke at email@example.com.
Trinity Singers provides choral music at the 8:45 a.m. service the second Sunday of each month, and rehearses in the Sanctuary the two Wednesdays prior from 6:30-7:30 p.m. It has been a great option for people whose schedules don’t allow them to rehearse and sing each week, as well as parents of children who are in choir at the same time. While attending both Wednesday rehearsals is encouraged (and fun!), they cover the same material in case you can only come to one of them. Everyone is welcome to join! We’re currently on hiatus during the pandemic, saving up our stories, recipes, fellowship, and voices until we can be together safely again.
