Music Ministry

Visit our Facebook page “MUSIC AT TRINITY” for more information

Music has always played an important role here at Trinity and we partner with many outstanding musicians and musical groups. Our Choir is comprised of music professionals who have sung with the Metropolitan Opera Company, Richmond County Choral Society and the Wagner College Choir as well as folks who just love to sing. Many of our members also teach at Wagner College and other neighborhood schools. 

We also enjoy a Bell Choir that graces our services throughout the year.  Other members in our congregation are music professionals and young musicians who add their talents.

Wagner College and Trinity’s history go hand in hand. The New York Ministerium, recognized the need to find a new home for Wagner, and placed the Reverend Frederic Sutter, one of Wagner’s first graduates, in charge of the relocation. Pastor Sutter, a lifelong supporter of Wagner College, had established his own ministry on Staten Island in 1907 (Trinity Lutheran).  Through Sutter’s efforts, Wagner College relocated to Grymes Hill on Staten Island in 1918.

In keeping with our ties to Wagner College, Trinity plays host to many of their concerts throughout the year. Visit Wagner’s website for more information.



Voyces is a Staten Island-based early music ensemble dedicated to
the study and performance of Renaissance and Baroque vocal works. Voyces is one of the many ensembles that hold concerts here at Trinity. The ensemble’s commitment to the community is one of education, exposure, and enjoyment of lesser known music.

Is a new baroque vocal chamber music collective and its members are the Artists in Residence at Trinity. They believe baroquevocal chamber music makes for a unique musical exprience because of its singular, intimate beauty. Staten Island artists and/or emerging artists are featured in each concert, because fostering both local and young talent is essential to the community and to the art form. Access is provided for as many people as possible: nursery services provided FREE for 5 and under, concerts about an hour, early start times, handicap access always, senior and student discounts, and kids 18 and under get in FREE.

We promote exposure to this glorious repertoire to an audience that rarely has access to it, using local artists as much as possible.
