Symphonic Band

Trinity College has a 41-year history of band music. The original pep band that assembled to play at athletic events grew into a concert organization in 1970 and began touring nationally in 1976 and internationally in 1990. Its core repertoire consists of the classics of concert band literature, including original pieces for band and skillful transcriptions and arrangements.

The Symphonic Band welcomes both music and non-music majors, and many band members take private lessons at Trinity.

Unless noted, all concerts are held in A.T.O. Chapel (see Campus Map). Tickets are available at the door or in advance by calling 847-317-8021.

Aspiring actors and singers won’t want to miss the chance to develop their talent onstage. Every year, Trinity students perform a play and one musical. Recent performances include, Arthur Miller’s, The Crucible, Puccini’s opera, Gianni Schicchi, and Shakespeare’s As You Like It. Writers and artists can display their craft at our annual Fine Arts Festival, a contest for student musicians, artists, photographers, and writers. The Trillium – a biannual publication of student poetry, photography, short stories, and essays – also showcases student talent.
