Twin County Chorus is growing, so much that we had to add a section to our risers! We are an outstanding chorus of 54 members now, most of whom have been with us for years. Our wonderful and talented director, Christine Krowles, who is in her first year as a solo Director, is doing a great job of teaching us songs, improving our techniques, and helping us look and sound our best. Yay, Christine!
