Hymn Festival Awesomeness

Trinity was pleased to host Jamie Bobb, Minister of Music at First Congregational Church in Columbus, Ohio, for a hymn festival on Friday, February 17.  Jamie had rehearsed with the Trinity Choir on that preceding Wednesday, and they very much enjoyed working with him.  The festival itself (which was a fantastic success) was a mixture of old and new hymns from various traditions, all an improvisations and arrangements by Jamie.
