A focus on the arts is an important aspect of our communal life, including a strong choral and musical tradition inside and outside of worship. Our space is used for many concerts and lectures.
Music is the sacred art that inspires our spirituality, bringing us closer to God and together as a congregation.
Today, Trinity’s organ enlivens our worship and elevates our musical program. Within the past few years we have restored and revoiced our organ, thanks to a special fund-drive that met and well-exceeded its goal.
Our Rite II services include hymns with a full adult choir. On any given Sunday, one can expect a beautiful duet performance by talented vocalists, a handbell recital, or a guest instrumental performance. On Sunday evenings, Trinity Evensong is held focusing on an organ prelude and individual contemplation.
We are very proud of our three children’s choirs, the Cherubs, Seraphims, and the Jane Wilson Girls’ Choir. This has become an absolute delight for our congregation to enjoy children’s recitals during services throughout the year.
Christmas is a time when children can take an active role in glorifying God through our annual Christmas Pageant. This is a tradition for the Cathedral dating back 62 years and is still performed in its original format. The children look forward to their role in the pageant every year and it is their opportunity to tell the story of Jesus’ birth through acting, music and creativity.
While our congregation tends toward the traditional and liturgical, we do look for opportunities for fun contemporary worship. Our “Summer Sundays on Spring Street” is a Rite III Eucharist held one Sunday a month during the summer. Here we feature music such as songs from Jesus Christ Superstar, a blue grass band, or jazz music.
As a historic place of worship in Little Rock, there is much love and appreciation for our physical space and surroundings. The congregation and Vestry put special focus on the preservation and sometimes restoration of the historic spaces around us; we’ve made extensive repairs to the church’s roof, and set to work renovating our children’s classrooms. These recent efforts evidence the breadth of spiritual and emotional nourishment we receive through our collective life here, as well as the diverse ways in which we are continually committed to maintaining, improving, and growing our physical space to meet our needs.
