The Trombone Choir

The Trombone Choir has been an active ministry of the Lititz Moravian Congregation since 1771

In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries the Trombone Choir climbed up to the spire to play a chorale announcing the death of a brother or sister. That tradition continues today at the Moravian Church as the choir plays the appropriate chorale in the Sunday service following a member’s death.

Regularly the choir provides “prelude music on the green” prior to Sunday worship services, Following Christmas Vigils the Trombone Choir provides carols on Church Square. Frequently during the year the Choir plays in concert with the organ and Senior Choir in regular worship services.

The Trombone Choir processes through town early Easter morning trumpeting the news of the Resurrection. In the Sunrise service the Trombone Choir leads the procession to the cemetery playing, often antiphonally, old Easter chorales.  The Choir also participates in such community activities as the 4th of July parade, Christmas caroling and Venture Lititz programs. The Choir frequently plays at retirement communities. In recent years the Trombone Choir has attended and played at the Eastern Trombone Choir Worship, one year in Williamsburg, and another year in Arlington, Virginia.

The Trombone Choir usually rehearses at 7:15 on the 3rd and 4th Tuesday evenings at the Church. Brass instrument players are invited to join. For information contact Marilyn Winfield by calling the church office at (717) 626-8515.
