Crimson Choir – Gold
Crimson Chimes – Gold
Crimson Handbells – Gold

In addition, special awards were give to a student in each group that exhibited excellence in the musicianship level and/or expression of playing.

The judges not only gave Trinity groups high musical ratings, but made comments to both directors, Jennifer Brown and Lisa Hernacki, regarding the demeanor and professionalism that students demonstrated that day. Jennifer Brown exclaimed, “What a testimony for our Lord! Soli deo Gloria!”
Students got to celebrate their success and hard work by playing hard at Knott’s Berry Farm for the afternoon and evening!
