Dr. Keith Timms, assistant professor of music education and director of choral activities at Erskine College, recently served as guest conductor of the high school All-County Chorus in Horry County, S.C. He was interviewed Feb. 10 for myhorrynews.com by August R. Dittbenner.

“There is something magical about doing more difficult music with other musicians who are just as eager to do it as you are, and I think that contagiousness will be brought back to the students who were not selected,” Timms said of the all-county choral event.

Timms is an Erskine College alumnus (Class of 1984) who went on to earn a master’s degree in music education from Furman University and a D.M.A. in music education from Shenandoah University Conservatory. He spent 30 years as a high school music educator. He and his wife, Amy Rankin Timms ’85 (who has served as adjunct instructor of mathematics) are past presidents of the Parent Advisory Council and the parents of Hannah Timms ’14 and Erskine senior Harrison Timms.
