Trinity Community Continues to Gather — in Virtual Spaces

Being separated physically has not kept the Trinity College community from connecting this semester. While the COVID-19 pandemic prevents large gatherings in spaces like the Washington Room, Vernon Social, or the Chapel, groups across campus are getting creative by moving events and activities online and inviting people to attend from wherever they are.


Choirs in perfect Harmony

The Albert Schweitzer Organ Festival Hartford (ASOFH) is an annual national festival and organ competition in residence at Trinity College. The Chapel Singers collaborated with choirs from West Hartford at the 2017 festival to premier a new piece of music commissioned from well-known composer Philip J. Stopford.
