Admission is by donation to the 7 p.m. event, from which proceeds will benefit the church's Visiting Musicians Fund and NorthWest Harvest.
Joy Lingerfelt, Holy Trinity's minister of music, has invited a variety of singers and players to the celebration, which is just an hour long:
■ The NorthWest Women's Chorale;
■ Singer-songwriter Michael Rivers and his quartet;
■ The handbell duo of Marlene Moore and Anita Bonham;
■ Flute soloist Jodi Chamberlain;
■ A piano trio featuring cellist Moore, pianist Gary McRoberts and violinist Kate Powers;
■ An ensemble with singers Rebecca Redshaw, Lucy Nordwell, Patti Dunlap, Elizabeth Kelly and Carol Philpott.
“I'll be at the organ for the third year running for Carols Galore,” added Lingerfelt.
“Each time we hope the public will come, yearning to sing the traditional carols in a traditional way.”
Rivers, who is also director of the Peninsula Men's Gospel Singers, is bringing a small, coed ensemble this Sunday.
The foursome will offer an original gospel-flavored carol titled “Hey Shepherd, Shepherd!” It has an angel — Noelle Johnson — singing the good news to some shepherds in the field: Rivers, Shawn Dawson and Dan Cobb.
“Joy knows how to put on a good show,” Rivers said, “and I'm delighted to be included. I know folks can expect lots of variety.”
