I wouldn't push too far. A fear of heights can be because of actual virtigo (the feeling of being dizzy when up high). When I'm up high I feel so dizzy that I think I'm going to fall even when I'm safely behind a wall or something. It's very disconcerting and, as a kid, would have freaked out if someone forced me to go somewhere high that made the vertigo worse.
But it wouldn't hurt to try and get her into the choir loft to show her that it isn't as scary as she is thinking. I also agree to encourage the other twin to join choir alone. It's good that they have separate interests and do things apart.
