Director of Communications & Marketing
A native of Georgia, Arwen felt like she found her real home when she landed in Portland at the end of an epic 5,000 mile road trip with her best friend in 2011, and she moved here (with said bestie!) immediately after graduate school. She didn't waste any time... Arwen started at Trinity as a staff singer in 2012, about two weeks after the move, and joined the staff about five months later.
Arwen's other life is as a full-time freelance classical soprano, and she often does her Trinity work on the road. Next time you email her, ask her where she is! She loves keeping busy, so she's also co-course manager of the Royal School of Church Music Pacific Northwest course and Executive & co-Artistic Director of Northwest Art Song in Portland. She lives with her partner Brian & cat Farinelli*, and she loves doing yoga, running slowly, and dancing lindy hop (swing!) in her spare time.
Arrival at Trinity:
Arwen started singing in the Trinity Choir in 2012 and joined the music staff just a few months later. She migrated to communications-land in 2018.
