Denise Peykanu, our "new" organist, actually comes to us with over 25 years experience as a pastoral musician. Her music studies include a degree in applied piano and music education from University of Texas, advanced organ and choral studies at UCLA and Cal State LA. She has participated in Liturgical Studies coursework at Mt. St. Mary's College and attends workshops at the local and national level in Pastoral Music.
 
Past appointments include Our Lady of Perpetual Help (Newhall), St. Lawrence Martyr (Redondo Beach) and American Martyrs (Manhattan Beach).  She has served  several other parishes lacally as a substitute when needed (St. John Fisher, St. Anthony of Padua, St. Margaret Mary and St. James).
 
Denise considers her appointment at Holy Trinity to be one of the most significant of her career.  Her relationship with Donna Barnes, our music director, goes back to their days together at St. Lawrence where their mutual love of music and liturgy inspired them to collaborate on projects which saw their professional growth as musicians, teachers and lovers of good liturgy.  Denise was thrilled at the opportunity to renew this spirit of collaboration in the newly renovated space at Holy Trinity.  She praises the parishioners of Holy Trinity for their love of singing, spirit-filled liturgies and strong committment to sacred song.  She thanks them for the opportunity to grow with them spiritually through their prayerful community.
