Music & Voice

Trinity-Pawling trumpeter improvises a solo with the Jazz Band in Gardiner Theater

Feel the rhythm in our choral and instrumental music classes — the heart of the music curriculum at Trinity-Pawling. Our instructors are successful and seasoned musicians with a passion for teaching their craft. They guide each student in sharpening their musical abilities, from playing an instrument, to singing a cappella, to exploring music theory. 

I tend not to focus on attaining perfection in my classes. Music is marvelously subjective, which means there is ample room for everybody to contribute to the whole and make it stronger and better.
Chris Kelsey, Director of Instrumental Music

Virtual Rock concert

Now live on Mixcloud...the first-ever Trinity-Pawling Virtual Rock Concert! Mr. Kelsey and the boys in the Instrumental Music Program collaborated remotely throughout the 2020 Spring Term to produce an incredible two-part performance, featuring the best in electronic music. Although it's not the same as performing together in Gardiner Theater, the creativity and talents of our students continue to shine. Rock on, boys!
