For more than 85 years, the Trinity College Chapel has been a landmark venue for extraordinary music making in offerings that enrich the life of the college and the wider Hartford community.
Chapel Music offers music in concerts and sacred events, sponsors collaborations with the music department, and provides a home for presentations by student ensembles and community organizations. Whether thrilling in the sounds of the pipe organ, celebrating the Christmas season at Lessons and Carols, or picnicking while the carillon rings out across the quadrangle, we hope you enjoy another year of beautiful music in and around one of Hartford’s great spaces.
The Summer Carillon Series has been a Hartford tradition since 1949, featuring national and international guest artists performing on Trinity's 49-bell Plumb Memorial Carillon. The evening begins with a chamber concert inside the historic Trinity College Chapel.
TCGC rehearses weekly and performs at various services and events, on and off campus, throughout the year. This student organization offers prayer, fellowship, and song in the contemporary gospel tradition.
ASOFH brings some of the world’s most promising young organists to Hartford to perform and compete on Trinity’s renowned Austin pipe organ. The festival also presents concerts, classes, and other educational opportunities at the college and throughout Hartford.
The 2019 festival featured concerts with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra and Christopher Houlihan, college organist.
