21C represents Music and the Arts at Trinity Wall Street

21C Media Group is delighted to announce that it now represents Music and the Arts at Trinity Wall Street for media and public relations.  One of the oldest, largest, and most vibrant Episcopal parishes in the world, Trinity Wall Street is located at the heart of New York’s financial district, where it has created one of the city’s most dynamic music venues.  21C Media Group will coordinate its activities with Linden Alschuler & Kaplan, Trinity’s lead public relations firm, which will continue overseeing media and public relations for Trinity Wall Street, including Trinity Real Estate.
The Trinity Choir and Trinity Baroque Orchestra – both recently pronounced “excellent” by the New York Times – offer a full season of concerts ranging from large-scale oratorios to intimate evenings of a cappella singing and chamber music.  Trinity Wall Street also boasts the popular Concerts at One recital series; held on Thursdays at 1pm, this features a wide array of soloists and ensembles and is free and open to the public.  All concerts at Trinity Wall Street are professionally filmed and broadcast live at
Trinity Wall Street opened the present season with an important new appointment, installing the noted conductor, composer, and keyboardist Julian Wachner as its inaugural Director of Music and the Arts.  In the new position, Wachner serves as Principal Conductor of the Trinity Choir and Trinity Baroque Orchestra.  He also oversees all liturgical, professional, and community Music and Arts programming at Trinity Church and St. Paul’s Chapel, ensuring that Trinity’s artistic programming is fully integrated into its overarching programming goals.
For Wachner’s season-opening debut, he led an account of Handel’s Israel and Egypt that the New York Times deemed “superbly performed.”  The Trinity Choir and Trinity Baroque Orchestra continue the season with two performances of Handel’s Messiah on December 12 and 13.  These annual holiday performances are a longstanding tradition at Trinity Wall Street, where the beloved oratorio was first presented in 1770.  This was only the Messiah’s second New World appearance, and the first also involved Trinity Wall Street; it was given just eight months previously and only blocks away, at “Burns Coffee-house,” 9 Broadway, as a fundraiser for a bankrupt former employee of Trinity Church.
