The Trinity Choir remains one of the most prestigious student organizations at the university, dating back approximately 140 years to the earliest days of the institution.
For decades, Trinity's oldest music ensemble has enjoyed a national reputation, including performances for the National Collegiate Choral Organization (NCCO), the Music Educator's National Conference (MENC), and multiple invitations for the Texas Music Educators Association Convention (TMEA). Comprised of 40 auditioned singers of diverse backgrounds and majors from across the university, the Trinity Choir's repertoire is equally wide-ranging as it encompasses sacred and secular works from the Renaissance era to the 21st century.
The Trinity Choir has toured regularly since the early 1910's. It is through this great touring tradition that the ensemble has continued to serve an important role as ambassadors for the university not only across the state of Texas but throughout the United States and abroad. International trips have included Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, Mexico, Romania, Yugoslavia, and the Israel. The latter produced an invitation to perform with the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra. In March of 2012, the choir embarked on its Northeast tour, performing in Washington DC, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York City.
In addition to their annual performances during the upcoming 2012-2013 season, the Trinity Choir will be presenting a Brahms program at the San Antonio Museum of Art as part of the city-wide Brahms Festival. In April of 2013, they will collaborate with San Antonio Symphony for the third time in two seasons as they perform Verdi's Requiem.
