History In September of 1957, Dr. Permilla Flack Dunston founded and organized The Twin City Choristers and served as The Choristers first music director. The group was composed of primarily male high school students from Carver High School where Dr. Dunston taught music. Through the years under various directors, The Choristers have continued to perform in churches, schools and concert halls in and around Winston-Salem and throughout North Carolina as well as concert tours to New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, and Connecticut. As members of the mainstream arts community in Winston-Salem, The Choristers have participated in concerts with the Winston-Salem Symphony, the Piedmont Chamber Singers, and Winston-Salem State University. The repertoire of The Choristers consists of both sacred and secular music.
The group is currently under the direction of Dr. Fred Tanner and accompanied by Ms. Rochelle Joyner.
Auditions for The Twin City Choristers are open to all men who have a desire to sing the truly beautiful music available for male choirs. Membership is without regard to race, creed, religion, or national origin.
The Choristers rehearse every Tuesday at 6:30pm at First Baptist Church, 700 Highland Avenue, Winston-Salem, NC.
