Church Music

Steeped in the traditions of Lutheran church music, Trinity maintains an active and growing music program for all age levels within the congregation.

‚Äč

Vocal choirs and instrumental ensembles at both the church and the school lift their praises to God through music. Almost every Sunday at Trinity is blessed with organ music and the talent of one or more of the parish's choirs or ensembles.

The Buzard Pipe Organ

Recognizing the importance music has in the liturgical life of the congregation and recognizing that the pipe organ is the best instrument to lead congregational singing, Trinity installed a new pipe organ in the fall of 2012. 

 

Built by the Buzard Pipe Organ Builders of Champaign, IL, it is the largest pipe organ in Sheboygan County, with 52 ranks, 40 independently speaking stops, and some 2930 pipes. The organ dedication coincided with the celebration of the congregation's 160th anniversary and the Mixed Choir's 150th anniversary.
