How will the organ enrich life at Holy Trinity and in our surrounding community?
Equipped with the Möller Opus 8128, we will be even more able to fill Rittenhouse Square with rich, sacred sound! Our beautiful church is already home to paid and free concerts for the Center City community and beyond. People from all faiths and walks of life have found a place to rest and have their spirits roused by gifted musicians. Organists, choirs, string ensembles, vocalists, and jazz artists have offered their talents to eager ears from around the region.
Holy Trinity is also a home for the formation of the next generation of Philadelphia’s musicians. Students from the Curtis Institute perform free concerts at Holy Trinity once a month to gain valuable experience. Singers from the Academy of Vocal Arts regularly perform in our space. Award-winning youth choirs and instrumental ensembles draw crowds in the hundreds. Holy Trinity’s youngest members also get a chance to learn music fundamentals by playing, singing, and ringing hand chimes during our larger worship services. These and other rising stars could provide concert and sacred music for decades to come.
The Möller Opus 8158 will help us to bring even more music and musical instruction to the greater Philadelphia region. By restoring this organ’s voice, we hope to breathe more life into the church and the city. Those who hold to faith in anything greater than themselves will find their souls stirred by this organ’s tones. With your help, we can bring this celebrated organ to its new home at the Church of the Holy Trinity, Rittenhouse Square.
