Friends of Music History and Information

 

The concept of Friends of Music at Holy Trinity grew out of a Long Range Plan in 1994 and was designed as an attempt to reach out to the community, sharing the Lutheran tradition and appreciation of good music and making a contribution of beauty to people’s lives in the area. This connection between the gift of Music and the Grace of God has become one in which we make our witness to the community. A bequest from the Ivan Romanenko estate was used as seed money to establish the Friends of Music at Holy Trinity program and his work of enhancing the cultural life of our area continues today.

 

Friends of Music at Holy Trinity concert series seeks to combine the Music and Outreach Ministries of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church to bring live performances of quality music to Greenville and surrounding areas and to embody the congregation’s desire to be a caring neighbor and a place for personal worship.

Friends of Music is a gathering of those near and far, interested in fostering quality musical offerings through this program by their financial gifts and support of the series. All contributions to this program are used exclusively for the purpose intended.
