Piano and OrganCasavant Organ, op. 978 (installed in 1923) Holy Trinity houses one of the oldest operating Casavant organs in the Edmonton Area. In 2012, the church began a multi-year, multi-phase restoration project. The first phase of this project was to replace the aging 1923 console, and commence emergent repair work in the chamber. A 1913 three manual console from Levis Quebec was procured, and restored for use, fitted with the most current Solid State Logic combination system, and installed into the church. The Specification of the instrument is listed below, most Great and Swell ranks are from the original 1923 organ, the Choir organ was installed in the Summer of 2016

Yamaha C7 Grand Piano In 2003, Holy Trinity received a tremendous gift by way of our 7-foot Yamaha piano, honouring the 50th wedding anniversary of Harold and Nancy Taylor, who were married in this parish, and remained as long-time parishioners. Sadly, Harold Taylor passed away in the spring of 2011, and he is deeply missed by our congregation. The piano has been raved as one of the best concert grands in the city, and that combined with the extremely great acoustics of the parish have made Holy Trinity one of the most sought after venues for chamber recitals and solo piano recitals. Holy Trinity also houses a baby-grand rehearsal piano (in the upper hall) as well as well-maintained upright-grands which are in constant use by choirs and private practice (one in the green room, and one in the lower hall). For more information about concerts and venue rentals for recitals, please contact the Facilities Manager.
