REDDING, Calif. - The Trinity Repertory Singers (TRS) of Simpson University invites community members to join its chorus as it begins its 2014-15 season.

TRS is conducted by Dr. Cyril Myers Jr., Simpson University’s director of choral activities. Dr. Myers holds a doctorate in choral conducting and has extensive experience as a choral director, as well as being an alumnus of three professional ensembles.
