Music at Holy Trinity

image-1Week by Week

Music plays a very important part in our life at Holy Trinity. Our Director of Music, Irena Henderson, plays the organ at the 11.30 am Sunday Mass and coordinates the choirs of adults and children whose contributions greatly enhance the worship. Irena welcomes enquiries from anyone who would like to sing. Please speak to her after a Sunday Mass.

Trinity Concert

Once a year, usually in May, Irena brings together a large choir and a small orchestra to perform a variety of music at the Trinity Concert which raises money for charity and involves children from our church school of St. Aidan. Next year (2017) the Trinity Concert will take place at 7.30 pm on Saturday 20th May.

Regular Concerts

Periodically Holy Trinity hosts informal concerts on a Thursday evening at 8.00 pm. These concerts last about an hour and feature local musicians. Entry is free, and there is a retiring collection.
