Music at Trinity United Church
Music at Trinity is an integral part of our worship and is led by our Music Director, Mr. Michael Morgan, along with the wonderful singing of our Senior Choir.
Music @ Trinity 2019-2020 – from Michael Morgan
Choir Rehearsals … have started already, but it’s not too late to come out and sing with us. It is an interesting year as we program a cantata and multiple joint services with St. Paul’s…and of course, Christmas is just around the corner! Maybe you’re not one to sing, but have another musical talent…please let me know.
The senior choir has a rich history of providing music as a ministry at Trinity United Church as long as the church has been in existence. They are a very talented, hard working group of individuals that pride themselves on producing music of a fine quality. This 25 member group leads weekly services in hymnody, as well as performing anthems of a variety of styles. The senior choir also performs in concerts and other music services throughout the church year.
Trinity United Church Organ
Trinity is host to a very fine pipe organ. This current organ was made by Casavant Freres company, in 1957, replacing the Franklin Legge organ which was installed 30 years prior. This Casavant is a three manual, electro-pneumatic console, with nearly 2000 pipes.
We are extremely lucky to have an instrument of this size and quality, which inspires us every Sunday morning to lift our voices in hymnody. Moreover, the organ is used to accompany the choir while singing anthems, as well as providing music before and after each service.
