The Music Ministry at Trinity Cathedral is diverse, creative, and grounded in the unique Anglican heritage of music in the Episcopal Church. Our music reflects the variety and scope of our Cathedral liturgies, from the regular Sunday morning Eucharist to reflective Evensong services and brilliant festive occasions. We are widely recognized for the diversity of our repertoire and for the high-quality choral and instrumental music we provide. Our primary goal is always to support the liturgy of the Cathedral and to enable all people to experience the transcendence of the living God through music.
