Trinity member Bryan Dunnewald will be directing the Chancel Choir, Youth Choir and adult and youth handbell ringers in his own arrangement of the hymn Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing in worship for both services. 

Bryan is currently pursuing a Bachelor's degree in organ performance at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. He also serves as Assistant Organist at the Wanamaker Grand Court Organ, the largest functioning pipe organ in the world, and as Organ Scholar at St. Mark's Church. 

Bryan composed this arrangement of Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing as a high school student, with the original intention that it would be performed by the Youth Choir and Youth Bells. The scale and complexity of the work, however, required larger ensembles of singers and ringers; thus, Judith Mitchell, Director of Music & Arts, decided to perform the work as a collaborative effort with our youth and adult choirs this season. We rejoice in welcoming Bryan to the podium and home to Trinity!
