The Trinity College Music Department exists to foster the understanding, teaching, and performance of music as an art, a discipline, a profession, and a calling and as a means to worship God and serve others. The department offers two majors and a minor. The music facility includes practice rooms, teaching studios, and the Faugerstrom rehearsal hall. The Mac lab in the adjacent Lew Center houses computers equipped with MIDI keyboards and software to enhance theory, composition, and music education studies.

Performance groups include the Concert Choir, Symphonic Band, Orchestra, Jazz Ensemble, Handbell Choir, and numerous vocal and instrumental ensembles. A large number of students participate in these groups regardless of their chosen major. The large ensembles typically present fall, Christmas, and spring concerts, and the Concert Choir and Symphonic Band tour extensively during Spring Break or in the month of May. Trinity ensembles have traveled throughout the United States, as well as in Europe, South America, the Caribbean, and the Far East.

The Music Department regularly presents concerts, recitals, and music theater productions on campus. Choral and instrumental groups also perform in local churches.
