Attention all Baltimore area Rock n Roll fans! Join Encore ROCKS Towson Rock n Roll Chorus!
The concept of Encore ROCKS is simple: the best rock-n-roll music of all time performed in a choral setting. Over the past 2 years, Encore ROCKS has grown exponentially, and is now delighting audiences and singers across the region. Each session we learn incredibly exciting rock music in 3 and 4 part harmonies, and perform large combined concerts complete with a rock band accompanying us live onstage. It is truly a musical experience like no other. Under the guidance of our professional conductors, experienced and inexperienced singers alike will be challenged, entertained, and educated and will absolutely love rocking' out together!

The Encore Board of Directors is pleased to announce the establishment of the Jeanne Kelly Founder's Fund named in honor of Encore's Founder and Artistic Director.
As Encore proudly embarks on its 10th Anniversary year of celebration, the Board believes that this is a perfect time to honor a woman who has dedicated over four decades of her life to the pursuit of excellence in the field of music as a performer, conductor, teacher and administrator. Her decade long passion for, and service to, singers over 55 is unparalleled, bringing to the spotlight the magic and power of older adult singers and their valuable contributions to our community.
The Jeanne Kelly Founder’s Fund will support two priorities that Jeanne holds most dear - ensuring conductor excellence and securing future growth and sustainability of the Encore Program, regionally and nationally. As Jeanne reflects on her lifetime of achievements during this 10th Anniversary year, it seems only fitting to recognize all that she has achieved in service to thousands of Encore singers who have been given a voice. An invitation to participate in this fund is being mailed to you soon. No gift is too large or too small. Your participation is what matters. Your gift will help new singers just like you discover Encore's program and experience the joy that singing can bring to their lives. Please make your gift to the Jeanne Kelly Founder’s Fund today!
Encore is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All contributions to Encore are tax-deductible.
