The Concert Choir has been the premier choral organization of the Trinity College music program since its inception. Repertoire for this coed group ranges from chant and the polychoral masterpieces of the sixteenth century, masterworks from the Baroque to the Romantic eras, 21st-century compositions, spirituals, and contemporary gospel settings.
From places as far as India and London, or as near as Chicago, students in the Concert Choir come from across the country and around the world. The Choir is also made up of men and women studying in a variety majors—not just music majors!
On campus, you will often find choir students involved in chapel music teams, Trinity’s biannual Coffee House, leading men’s and women’s groups, and in athletic competition.
The Choir meets four hours each week preparing for campus concerts, local church concerts, and occasional chapel services. Each year’s repertoire consists of pieces in multiple languages and a wide range of styles, from Gregorian chant to contemporary gospel, modern worship songs to classic works for orchestra and chorus.
Auditions for the Concert Choir are held at the beginning and end of every semester. Any students wishing to audition will be expected to perform one prepared piece of their choice, sight-singing, and vocalization.
