Here’s more information about the Chant Workshop:
The Chant Workshop will be led by Trinity’s Music Director, Christine Gevert. She will teach singers the theory and practice of chant in both Latin and English. Besides providing instruction about in the technical aspects of this ancient practice, this workshop is also a vehicle to experience the spiritual aspect of chanting.
The Workshop will conclude with a public All Saints Evensong at 7 PM. It will include the chants learned in the workshop and some hymns. Trinity Choir singers and some guests will also sing Spanish and English Renaissance Polyphony. Singers that want to participate in this polyphonic repertoire, need to contact Ms. Gevert and will be invited to a prior rehearsal. Scores will be provided ahead of this rehearsal.
To register for the workshop, please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org The workshop is free of cost.
Participants are asked to bring some food to share for a light potluck dinner.
We’re happy to provide you with an advance copy of the bulletin for Sunday!
Please feel free to download it, either beforehand or in church.
We will have a guest preacher and celebrant — one known well to Trinity regulars — and in addition will hear instrumental music by Alturas Duo.
Here’s the bulletin for Sunday’s service, July 10, 2016.
As we customarily do once a month at Trinity, this will be Youth Sunday for the month of July. Young people will perform most of the roles that are liturgically permitted, and this Sunday we will have a special treat as one of our own young people will be joined in a solo by a friend who has performed extensively in New York City .

==On the World Stage==
Trinity’s Music Director (and founding Artistic Director of Crescendo), Christine Gevert, will be in Bolivia for the next few days, performing at the XI Early Music Festival , the largest festival of Early Music in the world (more than 1000 musicians from all over the world, playing 146 concerts over ten days). Christine is slated to perform six of those concerts.
One of hers will be on the sole historic organ that survived from the days of the Jesuits in colonial times, and we’re hoping she brings back recordings. Here’s the schedule for the Festival:
Here’s a link to the Festival Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/apacfestivales/
And an eye-catching graphic!
This Sunday at Trinity:
Yes, we currently have our music director in Bolivia — but don’t worry, we’ll still have music at Trinity on Sunday: Doug Schmolze will be back!
