About our Choirs
Grace and Holy Trinity Cathedral features the gifts of several choir groups for singers of nearly all ages
The Trinity Choir is the most visible choral group at the Cathedral. They are the leaders of our musical worship most Sundays during the 10:15 a.m. service, and they take their duties as worship leaders very seriously. The Trinity Choir’s size is limited mainly by the space available in the gallery. If you are interested in joining the Trinity Choir, contact Paul Meier and he will arrange an audition.
The Trinity Choir has made several tours: to Great Britain in 1991, 1995, 2006, and 2013; to Europe in 2001; and a short tour to Washington, DC, to sing at the White House and the Washington National Cathedral. Plans for the next Choir Tour to England in 2016 are under way.
The choir has also collaborated with the Philharmonia of Greater Kansas City for performances of extended works; with the William Baker Festival Singers for a performance of Bach’s St. Matthew Passion; and with the Kansas City Chamber Orchestra and Village Presbyterian Chamber Choir singing Mozart’s Requiem.
The youth choir rehearses regularly and sings occasionally at worship and for major feast days. From time to time, the choir is invited to sing at weddings, ordinations or other special events. The Tallis Singers are always looking for young, enthusiastic musicians with a keen interest and aptitude for music who feel called to enrich our worship with their talents. Contact Paul Meier for more information.
Trinity Children’s Choir
Students are welcome and invited to sing in the Trinity Children’s Choir. Rehearsals are Sundays from 9:15–10 a.m. in Haden Hall, most Sundays. Singers gain vocal and musical skills as they prepare anthems, hymns and parts of the worship liturgy. The choir sings at the 10:15 a.m. service several times during the academic year. For more information contact Linda Martin, Children’s Choir Director.
Trinity Handbell Ensemble
The sound of handbells brings an added richness to our services. The handbell ensemble rehearses on Thursdays at 6 p.m. and plays occasionally at worship services throughout the year. Contact Paul Meier for more information.
