O come, let us sing to the Lord;
This is a special year of music and celebration at Trinity, Camp Hill as we commemorate with Lutheran churches around the world the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. Martin Luther said, “Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world.” Music continues to be an important part of our reforming movement within the church.
This year our Trinity Concert Series will welcome Seraph Brass, an all-female brass ensemble, and the U.S. Air Force Singing Sergeants for the first time to our Series. As we celebrate the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation, we will celebrate with a multimedia presentation of art and song through the ages led by choir and orchestra. Join us for each and every thrilling event.
Reformation 500: The Church’s Journey in Art and Song
Sunday October 22 at 4:00 pm
Outstanding! Performing are the Trinity Concert Choir plus choirs from area Lutheran churches, including Tree of Life, Harrisburg (Susquehanna Twp.); St. John’s, Shiremanstown; and First Lutheran, Carlisle; with orchestral accompaniment. Admission is free.
For centuries, we Lutherans have embraced hearty singing. We also have a rich tradition of the visual arts. Lively and ever-evolving, singing and visual arts are used to communicate God’s word. When joined, those artistic forms come together in an exceptional way to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. As you celebrate this important anniversary with us, you will LOVE the integration of music and art from many times, places, and people, and you will KNOW that the Holy Spirit has inspired us.
