The Music Program


Ron Wyatt, nationally acclaimed concert organist, has been Trinity’s Director of Music since 1975. His artistry and commitment are legendary and every year people flock to see Trinity’s Pipe Organ Extravaganza to get a glimpse of the master at work.

The Trinity Choir sings each Sunday at the 10:30 a.m. service as well as on Holy Days and other special services. The music sung by the choir is drawn from a wide variety of sources and includes representations of all the major periods of music history. Choir rehearsals are on Thursday evening at 7:30 and Sunday morning at 9:30. Singers are always welcome. To join the choir or simply to inquire, please contact Mr. Wyatt.

The Austin Organ


Trinity’s 69-rank organ, completed in 1989, was custom designed by Dr. Robert Baker and built by the Austin Organ Company of Hartford, Connecticut. The instrument’s primary purpose is to lead the congregational singing and accompany the choir. It is also capable of playing organ literature from all musical periods. With 4,086 pipes made of various woods and metals, the range is said to rival that of even the largest symphony orchestras. The three-manual drawknob console controls five divisions, including an antiphonal division with a brilliant trompette-en-chamade, located in the rear gallery of the church.
