Submitted by Twin Rivers Community Choir

The tenacious Twin Rivers Community Choir has exciting plans for a community video project and will start their 2022 season in an online format until the current PHO restrictions are lifted.

“We will not be stopped by COVID19!” says artistic director Christina Allen.

“Safe singing options are available online and with a small adjustment in how we do things, we can continue the momentum of our fall season and present the community with a wonderful new production at the same time.”

The choir is excited to announce a video partnership with Tyler Hadikin of Stacked Films on the next project.

“Stacked Films will bring drone technology to the production and allow for the choir to film together in a safe, outdoor and socially distanced manner,” Allen explained.

The choir is still welcoming new members. Interested parties should check out for full details. All participants must be fully registered which includes signing a 2022 COVID19 membership agreement and provide proof of vaccination should they choose to attend in person once available.

Rehearsals are held on Thursday evenings. In-person rehearsals take place at New Life Church and online rehearsals take place through Zoom.

An information meeting will be held Jan. 13 at 7 p.m. via Zoom. This meeting will be recorded for those who cannot attend and will outline the plans for the upcoming season.

Online singing rehearsals will commence Jan. 20 and extend as needed.
