Clubs and Afterschool Activities
Trinity Children’s Chorus (Grades 3–6)
Students in grades 3–6 are invited to join Trinity Children's Chorus (TCC)! TCC is a non-auditioned choir that meets Thursdays from 2:30-3:30 (grades 3-5) and 2:45-3:30 (grade 6). There is no fee to join TCC. The goal of Trinity Children's Chorus is to glorify God by using our voices to the best of our ability in a fun and welcoming community. The skills needed to create excellent choral music are taught at every rehearsal, making TCC an encouraging place for both experienced and new choristers.
Any student who would like to attend one sample rehearsal before making a final decision about TCC is invited to our first rehearsal on September 6 and again for our first rehearsal during 2nd semester on January 10.
After school on Thursdays, registered students walk directly to the LS Music Room. At 3:30, students enrolled in after school care go directly there while all other students are picked up. Our 1st semester runs from September 6 – December 13, with a performance at the LS Fellowship on December 13 at 8:40 am. We will celebrate our semester with a Christmas party during our December 13th rehearsal! Rehearsals for the 2nd semester will begin on January 10 and conclude with a program during the morning LS Fellowship on May 23, followed by our end-of-the-year TCC party during our normal rehearsal time May 23 after school.
The Trinity Lions Band (Grades 4–6)
The Trinity Lions Band is open to students in grade 4–6.
Beginner Band: For Lower School students just starting an instrument, this group learns the basics of sound-production, technique, and musicianship. They begin to read music and play songs together. No experience is required! Mondays and Wednesdays 7:30 a.m. – 8:20 a.m.
Novice Band: For lower school students with one year or more playing an instrument, this group continues the focus on reading music and developing good playing technique using a method book. They also begin to play some of the same repertoire as the middle school band. Tuesdays and Wednesdays 7:30 a.m. – 8:20 a.m.
We have some really exciting music planned for the students this year as well as a number of wonderful opportunities to perform -both at school and off campus. In addition to our school assemblies and concerts, the students will have the opportunity to participate this spring in our 8th Annual Trinity Band Festival, and a trip to Kings Dominion for their Band Festival Competition.
We are quite serious about continuing and building the tradition of excellence in our band program, yet the students will also have a great deal of fun bonding together and enjoying music as an ensemble -all the while learning to play real symphonic instruments! (We are also known for our yummy early morning breakfasts!) Trinity also owns a number of loaner instruments
Students with at least one year of experience on an instrument are welcome into the Novice Band (7:30 a.m.–8:20 a.m. Tuesdays/Wednesdays) while students just starting an instrument are welcome in the Beginner Band (7:30 a.m.–8:20 a.m. Mondays/ Wednesdays). Contact email@example.com for more information.

Lower School Strings Ensemble (Grades K–6)
Welcome back to Trinity Strings for the 2018-2019 school year. The upcoming year is packed with playing, growing, and performance opportunities, so we’ll need to hit the strings, playing! Be sure to invite your string-playing friends to join us this year: we have room to grow! Are you interested in joining strings, but don’t yet play an instrument? Are you unsure of which level you should join? Are you a homeschool student looking for an ensemble? Please contact me with any further questions! I look forward to hearing from you. You can reach me at email@example.com.The Lower School Strings Ensemble is open to students in Grades K–6 and meets Wednesdays from 7:50 a.m.–8:20 a.m.
In Lower School Ensemble 1, students will acquire the basic elements of ensemble playing, performance etiquette, and note reading. LSE 1 will have several opportunities to perform. As progress is made throughout the year, students will broaden their ensemble skills to include playing in parts and will be introduced to elements of music theory and history. This class is designed for beginning violin, viola, and cello students.
