Founded in 1991, the Trinity Jazz Ensemble is a group of six metropolitan Kansas City musicians dedicated to presenting jazz in church-related settings for worship, concerts, or special events. Trinity proclaims and celebrates the joys of God’s many gifts to us in uplifting spirit-filled musical settings. Trinity’s repertoire includes hymns with congregational singing, spirituals and gospel music, works by artists such as Dave Brubeck, John Coltrane, Duke Ellington, and McCoy Tyner, and pieces arranged or composed by ensemble members. Trinity is an ecumenical ensemble, with members drawn from various denominations, all leading professional careers as performers, music educators, the recording industry, or sound production specialists. The Trinity Jazz Ensemble is an ensemble-in-residence at MidAmerica Nazarene University.
