Encore Chorale



Biography

Encore Creativity for Older Adults is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to providing an excellent and accessible artistic environment for older adults, either beginning, intermediate, or advanced levels, who seek arts education and performance opportunities under a professional artist. Encore currently has 15 Encore Chorales and 5 Encore ROCKS in VA, MD & DC serving over 1000 singers, and 11 affiliate chorales nationally.

The Encore Chorale will open for the Spring 2017 season of singing starting in January for 15 weeks. Encore singers improve their voices, meet new friends and enjoy a great new adventure singing challenging music in four parts in preparation to join other Encore Chorales from the Baltimore/Washington area for exciting free community concerts. There are no auditions and singers may sit to rehearse and perform. The value of choral singing in improving and sustaining the physical, mental and social health of older adults is documented and undeniable. Encore offers the opportunity to explore a new artistic venture for those who have not sung in years, or to continue a life-long passion for others. Singers learn vocal technique, proper breathing and posture, and always come away delighted by the weekly rehearsals.
