Children’s Choir (grades 3-8) will practice on Sunday, January 16 at 9:30 a.m. in Trinity House. Students will be accompanied to the rehearsal and then to the church. All students in these grades are invited to be a part of this ministry.
Parents are encouraged to spend some time with your child(ren) discussing the importance of music in the Church music is not an ornamentation to the liturgical services but is an essential element of the services, the medium by which the Church instructs the faithful. Prayerfully consider taking advantage of this readily available means for your child(ren)’s spiritual growth and education.
It is understood that not all children may want to be part of the choir, but perhaps they can attend a few practices first to get a “feel” for it (students not rehearsing this Sunday will be dismissed to you).
On Saturday, February 9, from 4 to 5:30 p.m., the Holy Trinity Choir will hold a clinic for all current and potential members. Fr. John, Bob Roberts, and Karen Cattell will introduce vocal technique, pitch, intonation and balance, and sight reading, with instruction geared toward new members.
