“We hugely appreciate the stunning contribution of Garden Club of Bermuda”, said festival coordinator Andrea McKey.

She has been involved in the planning of the event for over two years.

Performers over the course of the festivities will include: three church piano students — Prince Domingo, Nathan Foster Skelton and Ariana Fox — the Bermuda Folk Club, the City Singers, the Ensemble Singers, the joint choir of St Mark’s and Holy Trinity, the Recorder Group and Flute Trio, organists and pianists Jonathan McBeath, Walter Ingham and Angie Sainsbury and saxophonist Cordell Warner with singer Elton Richardson.

“We have so many brilliant musicians in our local community”, said priest-in-charge Canon John Stow. “It’s great to showcase their music as an extra enjoyment for everyone taking part.”

The church, which is in Bailey’s Bay, has undertaken a wide range of renovations in the run-up to the 400th anniversary celebrations, including an overhaul of the tower and the spire.

A grand opening for the festival was held at 5.30pm Friday, with Rena Lalgie, Governor of Bermuda, and US Consul-General Karen Grisette in attendance. Skilled workers who participated in the repair project were recognised at the event.

During the festival, many items from the Trinity 400 Exhibition, which was held in City Hall in April, will be on display in the church hall.

A festival service will be held at 10.30am tomorrow.
