Update: From Trinity's Patti Williams — We really want to win and need the community to help! The girls are so excited...not only for the opportunity to win the $10,000 for their music department, but also for the opportunity for Taylor Swift to perform at Trinity!

What would they do with the money ? They said lets think big! Maybe choral risers and acoustical shell, orchestra instruments and funding...so many opportunities! Exciting! Trinity has a fantastic chorus which would truly be enhanced and be even more amazing with this opportunity! Check them out at the December 19th concert...hopefully they will have their new equipment then...so people can see what their votes provided! But we have to win so let's get out the votes!
