Trinity Lutheran School places a high value on the fine arts, with music, visual and performing arts incorporated in purposeful ways from preschool through 8th grade. Students at Trinity experience fine arts in the classrooms through the volunteer-led Art Outreach program and weekly teacher-led art instruction.
The annual Spring Musical provides students with costume and set design opportunities, as well as early exposure to the performing arts. Throughout the school year, students in preschool through 8th grade participate in church choirs. In the weeks leading up to Christmas, students lead congregational Advent services, giving them an opportunity to use their musical gifts to serve the church.
The recorder is introduced in 4th grade, and students in 4th though 8th grade have the option of choosing an instrument and participating in the Trinity Band. Private instrument lessons are offered for band students during the school day, and students have the opportunity to compete in various festivals and contests throughout the school year, including:
- Illinois Music Education Association District Fall Festival
- Lutheran High School Solo/Ensemble Contest
- Illinois Elementary School Association Solo/Ensemble Contest
- Illinois Lutheran Honor Band
