Great music has been a staple of our parish life for generations. It enriches our worship services, and we offer Evensong and CandleChant services throughout the year for a more contemplative service.We are pleased to to showcase not only our own Trinity Choirs but numerous artists of excellence from the Southern Tier and beyond.
During the year, we host musicians for special performances:The Binghamton Madrigal Choir, The Binghamton University's Harpur Chorale, the Binghamton University Women's Chorus, and others as opportunities present themselves.
