In Easton: Trinity Choir will sing Easter anthem composed by 18-year-old parishioner

By Jan Charney

Robert Olieman has been a member of Trinity for his entire life; he attended church school, was a youth group member, and served as an acolyte until he graduated from high school. He attended both Happening and Christophany. He is a freshman at West Chester University, majoring in music composition. (He composed an orchestral piece which was performed at his 2005 Easton High Schoo graduation.) Trinity’s choir sang his first choral composition in the fall, and he has now written an Easter anthem, Sing We Joyfully, that willAll be used both at the Easter Vigil and on Easter Sunday morning. We are proud of him. All the Olieman family members are an integral part of the congregation. Dad Pete has served on the vestry; and is a teacher for the parish confirmation class. Mom Nina sings in the choir, and did church school duty when the boys were younger. She also prepares the personalized baptismal “bibs” that are given to infants on their baptismal day. Older brother Peter is a student at Temple University, and also did church school, youth group and served on the celebration team at several Happenings. Special kudos to Robert, and thanks to all the Oliemans for their active life at Trinity – they’re a gift every parish should have.
