Churches

Location: Trinity Presbyterian
Website: http://tpcdenton.org/welcome
Contact Info: Lenora McCroskey, Director of Music; dulcianne@icloud.com
Cost: Free!
Scheduling Availability: Best time is Sunday afternoon at 4 pm, of course depends on the church’s schedule.
Grand Piano: Yes
Other Information: The church has offered their space for recitals for several years, and so there is usually a good audience. They ask that the student provide help in setting up the sanctuary and putting it back in order. They can probably provide programs if given it 2 weeks in advance and you don’t mind using their template. We would put the recital on our Trinity Series, which occurs periodically.  We also ask for publicity info so we can put an announcement in our weekly newsletter.  We cannot provide posters, although we will certainly put one up on our announcement board and people do look at that.  Rehearsal times must be scheduled with the office and will occur between 1-5 in the afternoon, M-F.  There can be no charge for the recital, and donations cannot be requested.  Warm but not reverberant acoustics; open, light, small sanctuary.
