==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:

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!
The bulletin for Sunday, April 17 is a particularly important one, because it celebrates the visit of the congregation, clergy, and musicians of Christ Church Cathedral in Hartford to Trinity Lime Rock.
The service will be bilingual (English/Spanish) as noted. It marks the first time in the history of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut that the Cathedral congregation has gone out to visit a parish church in the diocese.
You can download the bulletin (all 19 pages of it) as a PDF file here:
