They are assisted by a Music Parent's Association. Students who are interested in Music Council are encouraged to be informed and to participate.
Music: Concert Band
The Concert Band is a medium-advanced ensemble comprised of students with some musical experience. Wind instruments and percussion are featured in this ensemble. In addition to giving two concerts at the school a year, the concert band program plays a tour of local Feeder schools, various school functions and represents the school at music festivals.
The Blessed Trinity Choir sings at school liturgies, board functions, music festivals, school concerts and at other events throughout the year. This choir features singing in four-part harmony with female and male students. It is the core ensemble from which smaller, more challenging emerges including separate and advanced small groups for Men and Women. Though the audition process is used for determining soloists and placement in the small ensembles - membership to the choir is open to all with a desire to improve their singing and dedication to the choir. The choir sings a wide variety of musical styles.
Music: Choose your own adventure!
