Opportunities to Perform

Trinity Church Wall Street is pleased to offer performance opportunities for amateurs and professionals of all ages. From Downtown Voices to Change Bell Ringing, Trinity's diverse programming allows musicians and artists to grow in their craft while giving back to the Lower Manhattan neighborhood.

 

Downtown Voices

Downtown Voices is a semiprofessional choir at Trinity Church Wall Street made up of volunteer singers from the New York metro area and members of the professional Choir of Trinity Wall Street. It is directed by Stephen Sands and began its inaugural season in the fall of 2015. Learn more about how to audition.

Congregational Arts

Congregational Arts celebrates artistic gifts, as both accomplished artists and novices participate together in classes, dance, theater, poetry, and other events, providing theological insights on spiritual, social, and moral issues. Learn more and get in touch.

 

Change Bell Ringing

Trinity's steeple is filled with bells—23 to be exact! In addition to 11 chiming bells that mark the hours, Trinity has the only set of 12 change-ringing bells in the United States, a gift of British businessman and philanthropist Martin "Dill" Faulkes in 2006. They are uniquely beautiful and require extensive training to ring. A full peal can last between three and four hours. Trinity's change-ringing bells are rung for civic events and weddings, as well as every Sunday. New ringers are always welcome.
