Please take time to read this information and consider joining one or more of our choirs. We hope that you will find a home here and discover or strengthen your joy of making music.
Trinity Church, Meade Parish has a diverse membership of about 350. The church itself was built by hand of native sandstone in the style of 12th century French and Swedish country churches. It has excellent acoustics and is an inspirational place to sing. The organ is a 55 rank Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ which is ideal for accompanying a wide variety of sacred music styles. We employ a Director of Music Ministries, an organist, a church music assistant, and four student section leaders in the choir. Our current music program continues to build on a long tradition of great music with hopes of further perfecting our praises and nurturing each other.
Our music ministry includes the following choirs:
Children are introduced to the fundamentals of pitch and rhythm as they begin to develop their singing voices. They also learn the basics of worship practice as they prepare to sing in church once a month. Discovering a joy of singing is the primary goal.
This choir is designed to correspond with the Choristers Guild (the national organization of children’s choirs). We will be attending Choristers Guild events, presenting our annual Christmas concert at the Austrian Embassy and singing in church once a month.
The Adult handbell choir plays a variety of traditional handbell music, as well as accompaniments to choral anthems and congregational singing, on our 4-octave set of Schulmerich Handbells. Music reading ability is helpful but not essential.
The Chancel Choir is the focal point of our ministry of music, providing offertory anthems and congregational leadership each Sunday for the 10:30am worship service and all major liturgical occasions. Group vocal development, musical interpretation, worship practice and spiritual growth are all emphasized.
