Music at Trinity
Music is an essential component in creating an awareness of the presence of the Holy Spirit. In concert with the pastor, the Music Team plans creative ways to enhance each Sunday’s sermon message, creating a unified worship experience. In addition to our organ, piano, bell choir, and 40+-member choir (the largest in our Conference), special music employing differing styles, instruments, and groups enriches our worship services.
With excellent acoustics, our facility is a concert venue in Sequim, the Peninsula Singers, Port Angeles Symphony, Grand Olympics Chorus, and others often performing in our sanctuary.
Who are we?
One of our congregation’s music ministries, The Trinity Singers is the adult choir that sings at Sunday morning worship.
What is our purpose?
Our purpose is connecting people to each other and to God through the gift of music.
What do we sing?
Our repertoire represents the entire spectrum of musical styles with music chosen to reinforce the pastor’s message. We recognize the value of both traditional and contemporary music. We provide a venue for new composers’ works to be heard.
Membership in the choir is open to anyone of any vocal skill level and experience. We believe members should have a high level of commitment because we have consistent musical leadership. We welcome singers to practice for seasonal programs as well as become long-term choir members.
Choir rehearsal starts the first week of September and continues until June. We rehearse every Wednesday at 4:30 – 5:30 PM.
Trinity United Methodist Church Bell Choir
The Bell Choir, directed by Sue Ninemires, provides an opportunity for people to serve God through making music by ringing handbells and hand chimes. Rehearsals are every Thursday from 3:00 to 4:00 pm.
Praising Hands Choir is directed by Rae Walz. Choir members learn, discuss, and communicate theological concepts through singing hymns in the worship service.
Our music is also enhanced with flautist extraordinaire Carlos Xavier.
