For more than 85 years, the Trinity College Chapel has been a landmark venue for extraordinary music making, both in concerts and services that enrich the life of the college and the wider Hartford community.

Whether thrilling in the sounds of the Austin pipe organ, celebrating the Christmas season at the Festival of Lessons and Carols, or picnicking on the quadrangle during the Summer Music Series, we hope you enjoy another year of beautiful music in and around one of Hartford’s great spaces.


The Chapel Singers

Trinity's oldest student organization, founded in 1825, the Chapel Singers perform at major college occasions, Chapel services, and present concerts.



A centuries-old service of sung prayer that marks the end of day and the arrival of evening through beautiful music, silence, candlelight, and incense.

Behind the Soundtrack of Trinity

It would be difficult to find a member of the Trinity College community who has never heard the bells of the historic Trinity Chapel. Ellen Dickinson—musician, composer, and college carillonneur at Trinity—is the woman behind that music and has served the college for a decade.

Celebrating 40 Years of Music

Robert Edward Smith, the longtime composer in residence of the Trinity College Chapel, has served the institution for more than four decades. The July 10 Summer Music Series concert will include the premiere performance of his piece, “Trio d’anches.”
