Dr. Rändel Wolfe joined the staff of historic Trinity Lutheran Church in October 1999. He served as the Director of Music & the Arts through 2010. Rändel was named Director of Music & the Arts Emeritus when an illness prevented him from continuing his ministry. He joined the church triumphant in April 2013. As an on-going testimony to the musical gifts of our brother in Christ, we established the Rändel L. Wolfe Memorial Concert Series to provide support for organ recitals and concerts throughout the year.
These concerts are supported through free-will offerings and patron contributions. If you would like to make a gift to support the Rändel L. Wolfe Memorial Concert Series visit our Online Giving page or mail contributions to the church office.
March 11, 2017 – 7:00 PM – Albright Angels and Mane Men
The Albright Angels were founded in the fall of 1998 when several students expressed the desire to form a student directed ensemble with the purpose of performing popular music for campus performances. In 2003 this group became one of the choral ensemble offerings guided and directed by the music department. The Albright Angels have expanded their repertoire to include a variety of musical styles and genres dedicating themselves to performing quality literature written specifically or arranged for treble voices.
Mane Men was founded in the fall of 2001 when several students expressed their desire to form a men’s choral ensemble. Their objective was to spend some time away from the rigors and demands of the daily college schedule by expressing themselves through their common joy of singing. The Mane Men are dedicated to the choral art of performing quality literature written specifically or arranged for male voices. Their repertoire consists of a variety of styles and genres encompassing music from the renaissance to the present.
