Our Ongoing Traditions
As a seminary, Trinity moves with the heartbeat of the academic calendar, but Trinity is also driven by several annual events that hold special significance within our seminary and that welcome members of the larger community.
Choral EvensongThe Trinity Seminary Choir leads All Saints Choral Evensong in the fall, and Easter Choral Evensong in the spring.
Choral Evensong begins with an extended prelude including a wide variety of musical styles focusing on the seasonal theme, followed by the service of Evening Prayer from Evangelical Lutheran Worship, including hymns with instrumental accompaniment, psalmody, scripture, prayers, sung litany, and a major choral work.
For spring 2013, the Seminary Choir is rehearsing the Mozart Trinity Mass, which will be sung at All Saints Choral Evensong on Friday, April 12, 2013. Seminary Choir is composed of students, spouses, staff, faculty and friends of Trinity from the wider community. No audition is necessary, however registration is encouraged.
