Midwest Crossroad Chorus Leadership

Midwest Crossroad Chorus thrives because of the energy and style of the people who have stepped up to lead. Here are a few of the people that make our ensemble tick:



Tori Hicks - Director

Tori Hicks, a Sweet Adelines Master Director, is a thirty year veteran of the Midwest Crossroad Chorus of Sweet Adelines International Region 3.  She served as assistant director and choreographer for the chorus for her first ten years as a member, but stepped out of the ranks in January of 1997 to become the front-line director, leading the chorus to numerous regional championships and International Competition appearances.  Tori graduated from Lewis University with a degree in Vocal Music; her interest in early childhood education sent her back to school for certification in this field.  Tori has been a pre-school educator for over 20 years and now is the Director of the Our Savior Lutheran Preschool in Joliet, Illinois.  She has blended her two professional interests perfectly!  In addition to directing the Midwest Crossroad Chorus, Tori has sung in numerous accomplished quartets. Stretching her musical talent even further, Tori also directs her church choir and hand bell choir!    Tori, happily married to Daniel for 29 years, has two adult children, Jenelle and Jordan.   This busy woman has touched the lives of many with her sparkling sense of humor, positive energy and unflagging enthusiasm!
