Grant Street in Bay City is celebrating its history and rededicating recent restoration work at two special worship services. The church will be open for tours and the celebration of Evensong on October 23, 2010. The Battle Creek Boychoir will be special guests for the traditional Anglican service of Evensong. Also included will be a reunion of Charlie White’s boys who sang in the all male choir at the church in the 1930s. White was organist-choir master at Trinity from 1903 to 1948. On Saturday, October 23, at 4:00 p.m. Trinity Episcopal Church of Bay City will present a classic Evensong service featuring the Choir of Men and Boys of the Battle Creek Boychoir. The Boychoir is composed of 16 to 22 boys ranging in age from 9 to 13 who are drawn from several school districts in Southwest Michigan. As a choir of treble voices, the Boychoir has sung throughout the eastern United States and Canada in concerts and church services. They have also served as guest artists with major symphonies in works such as Tosca, Turandot, Carmen, LaBoheme, and Mahler’s Eighth Symphony. Their overseas tours have included performances at London’s Westminster Abbey, Leipzig’s Gewandhaus, the International Eisteddfod in Wales, and in concert with the Gunma Symphony Orchestra in Takasaki, Japan. For this performance, the trebles will be supplemented by a compliment of adult singers drawn from the Battle Creek area to create a 4-part male choir. Sung Communion will be celebrated on Sunday, October 24, 2010 at 10:00 a.m. Special guests from the church’s history will be present including former rectors Herbert Catlin and Peter Comino. Robert White will conduct his father’s anthem “Build Thee More Stately Mansions, Oh My Soul” at the festival service. Robert White was the band director at Handy High School, Director of Music for the Bay City Public Schools and Choir Director at First United Methodist Church in Bay City. Trinity Episcopal dates back to 1854 when a small group of faithful Episcopalians gathered together to form the Parish of Trinity in what was then called Lower Saginaw. The historic building was the first stone structure in Bay County. The cornerstone was laid on April 16, 1885 and the building was used for worship for the first time on Thursday, April 14, 1887. Part of the current building dates to 1882 when a stone chapel was built and then later incorporated into the parish hall. Phillips C. Ploeter, a local architect designed the neo-Gothic style church. He called the syle Perpendicular Gothic. The following description of the building was printed in the Bay City Tribune on April 15, 1887. “The church is constructed of Sandusky blue limestone, heavily trimmed with Borea (Ohio) sandstone, and consists of Chancel, nave, transepts, and porches, and is situated on the northwest corner of Center avenue and Grant street, with the main facade on Center avenue.” The construction and furnishing cost a total of $70,000.00 in 1887. The current work done on the building is the result of a process that began in 2005 when Trinity was Chosen by a committee of the “Michigan Historical Preservation” organization, along with “Partners For Sacred Places” to develop new sources of funding and support to preserve the historic building. A team of four church members – Leo Borrello, Marshall Carter, Rev. Frank Davenport, and Charles Leibrand – attended a series of seminars around the state. The Save Our Sacred Places Committee evolved into a successful Capital Campaign, chaired by Tim Moulthrop, worked on by many people, and supported by the entire congregation. Trinity has a long history of music excellence. Former musicians include Charles White, Wallace (Wally) Cramer, Ruth Hahn, F. T. Meisel and Frank Serresseque. Trinty was also known for some of its fine singers including Ann Hachtel, Bev Burke, and Earl Perry. The Reverend Michael Herman is the 18th and current Rector of the church. Father Mike will officiate at both the Evensong on Saturday and the Sung Communion on Sunday morning. The schedule for Saturday, October 23, 2010 is: 2:30 p.m. Building Tours Tea in the Guild Room 4:00 p.m. Evensong 5:00 p.m. Refreshments in the Parish Hall Both worship services and the tours are open to the public free of charge.
