Music & Arts
“A truly educated life must be touched by the arts.”
At Trinity, we honor God as creator of all beauty and acknowledge ourselves to be creators in His image. Music & the visual arts are an essential component of each student’s experience. The arts are a gift from God, and provide a way to express worship to God. Our students learn to create and appreciate art in all its forms.
Trinity’s visual arts program strives to provide a comprehensive program which will cultivate personal development and a sense of joy and confidence in students as they create and share their artwork. The curriculum includes the elements of art and principles of design while incorporating art history and art appreciation as an integral part of the studies. Since we worship God and He is the author of creativity, each lesson is designed to foster the creative spirit in every type of student on an individual level.
God’s Word is full of commands to play musical instruments. Learning to play a musical instrument can be a valuable experience and a lifelong tool for ministry. Classes and lessons in piano and string instruments are offered to all students in the 1st through 12th grades. Students have the opportunity to hear these various instruments demonstrated at the beginning of the school year before registering for small group or private lessons. No experience is necessary. Additional fees for instrumental music apply.
Shout for joy to God, all the earth;
sing the glory of his name;
give to him glorious praise! Psalm 66:1-2
Trinity High School Chamber Singers
TPS High School Chamber Singers is an auditioned choir that provides students in the 8th – 12th grades the opportunity to grow in musicianship, vocal ability, and to experience the joy of singing in a choral ensemble. While all TPS students receive basic vocal instruction in our Upper School music class and have the opportunity to sing at our school concerts, students in the Chamber Singers are given more in-depth musical training, and the opportunity to work on more challenging repertoire in order to achieve a higher level of musical excellence. Chamber Singers competes and participates in several festivals throughout the year, including the ACSI Northeast Regional Fine Arts Festival in March.

Viva Voce provides an opportunity for students in 5th – 8th grades to develop further skills in singing and musicianship in addition to what they learn in their regular music classes. It is open to all students in the 5th – 8th grades; no audition is required. In addition to singing in the school concerts, Viva Voce will participate in the Cairn Choral Festival and Music in the Parks.
